Watch Your Mouth: Understanding the Power of the Tongue
By Tony Evans / Harvest House Publishers
Ever had a “tongue lashing”? Whether it’s a harsh comment, verbal explosion, or social media rant, words can destroy. What can we do to tame our tongues? In Watch Your Mouth, Tony Evans encourages you to model God’s character with your mouth, showing you how to use the power of language to bless others as you speak life into the world.

Watch Your Mouth provides knowledge and awareness concerning a particular body part, the tongue. It tells of the power we give to it and the many ways that power can be used. As well as bringing awareness to the good the tongue can do, it also brings awareness to the bad. The tongue can be used for both good and bad within the same hour; it brings forth life or it brings forth death.
Tony uses Scripture to back up and support his message on the tongue. In the appendix, Tony supplies information on where in the Bible different topics on the tongue can be found; a reference guide.
Some things about the tongue I was already aware of and then there were other things that were brought into the light by Watch Your Mouth. I recommend Watch Your Mouth to all. We need to be aware and sensitive to to what the tongue can do and how it can be used, even unintentionally.
