Tongue twisters are a fun way to see how clever you are with using your words. Most of you probably know the ones like:

“Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.”

 These are actually great exercises for building up your enunciation. It’s also a great way to work out your brain.

We often have to slow down our minds and think more clearly about what we say when we are trying to go fast with a tongue twister.

This is a good thing! We need to be more careful in what we say as Christians. Once you say something, you can never take it back. It’s out there permanently and the damage is done. 

This month we are focusing on starting out the new year and becoming the person God created us to be. This may mean starting some new habits or stopping some bad ones we have. It may even mean finding new life in Jesus if you don’t know Him as your Lord and Savior.

So in this new year, one goal every one of us should have is to watch what we say. Let’s use our words to honor Christ and spread the message of hope and the gospel.

We can learn a lot about how to do this from the Apostle Paul in his letter to Colossae. Let’s turn this morning to Colossians 4 and take a look.
