We can counter the effect of a bad tongue by modeling a good tongue. We should speak honestly but lovingly. Also, we should speak kind words to others and go out of our way to compliment people who deserve it. How many times have we complimented our children this past week?

The church represents the ongoing work of the ascended Christ. Therefore, the goal of the church is to reflect the priorities of Jesus for His people. The most important responsibility of the body of Christ is to follow the Head and King of the church. —John Tweeddale

Instead of seeing the Lord’s Day as a rule that stifles our “weekend,” we need to view it as a gift from God that actually structures our lives. The practice of the Lord’s Day is not legalism, but it is a part of our piety, providing us physical and spiritual rest.
