I love all the verses about guarding our tongues. Probably because I need lots of work in that area.

Cahtty, I'm psyched that you are starting Bible study soon. Do you have a Life Application Bible? That's the best thing since sliced bread. Also, Eugene Peterson's books, The Message. Check them out on Amazon. It's the Bible in today's words. It's fun to read one version and then read Peterson's interpretation. Just a thought...

Toni thats such an interesting idea. For Bible study we meet in smaller groups, the congregation numbers in the thousands, on Saturday night service there were 1361 people there to worship God. Anyhow we meet and read from the Bible and discuss it so people like myself with so many questions gets them answered. It's a warm and loving time well spent.

Dotsie the Bible I have is called:
HOLY BIBLE, New International Version, by Zondervan (with words of Christ in red letters)its in large print and easy to read.

Chatty,

Your Bible study sounds very nice; informal and interesting.

I was part of a Bible study group years ago and we learned so much from each other. It was a wonderful experience.

Women from the Bible are so much like us and vice versa. There is so much we could glean from them--they were brave, bright,kind and compassionate--and so are we!

Chatty, I use The New Revised Standard Version, but it's a Life Application Bible. It's similar to your's, but at the bottom of each page there's a modern day interpretation which is extremely helpful for me.

For more verses about tongues check out
James 3:2,3
3:6
3:8

Also, if anyone is interested perhaps we could do a private forum Bible Study. Pick a book of the Bible and post about it each day?

Proverbs 17:27,28-
"He that hath knowledge, spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding."

Proverbs has so much to teach us regarding our words too!

Songbird, I've studied most of the verses about gurading our tongues. I love to talk, always have, but as my faith has grown deeper I've realized I need to be more aware of what I'm saying. Imagine that! ALways room for growth! [Wink]

I'm a big, big fan of the Message Bible. Even growing up in church, I missed a lot of the nuances in the Bible until I got the Message. My feeling is that it would be how everyone would sound were this all to take place today.

It's good to have several versions and compare them.

The Prayer of Jabez is breathtaking, isn't it? It gets right to the heart of the matter and in such a beautiful way.

I love the Prayer of Jabez and have prayed/written it whenever I journal since I read the book.

I pray it for my family too.

Bless us indeed.
Increase our territory.
Keep your hand upon us.
Keep us from evil.

I abbreviate and write it differently each time.
