The following pages are meant to be a study of how we are to be careful with our tongue… even the every day innocent words can be misused or simply misunderstood.
It does not always take foul language or perverse conversation to offend, mislead, or most importantly ruin a testimony.
Please be reminded as you read Conversation 1 that it is NOT what it sounds like.
Please try to finish to better understand Conversation 2.
The example is meant to read as overheard without the knowledge of the information.
If you become too offended, skip to Conversation 2.
Hopefully this will remind us of Proverbs 18:21,
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
T
he song warns us,
“Oh be careful little tongue what you say. Oh be careful little tongue what you say.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little tongue what you say.”

Conversation 1, Page 2
written by Gail Brookshire
Friend, I must tell you about my new man. He’s such a pleasure. He is so good at what he does for my body.
From the moment I see him, he is focused on helping me to relax. He makes sure I am aware of his intentions and addresses any discomfort. With his caring voice he takes my hand in his and has me lay just where he wants me. He gently removes my clothing and pinpoints just where I need him. He knows my needs so well, he can see right through me. He fills me with such ease as his hands do their skill. His pressure brings about my pleasure. Soon I am feeling good.
Afterwards he takes time to help me to dress. He smiles as he sees I am so lightheaded. He asks if I am okay. He tells me it was a delight to see me, and he looks forward to seeing me again.
I’m telling you, girl, if you need comfort he is the man for you. He is too good to keep to myself. His hands are such healers. I am so thankful for him. He’s worth the wait. He’s worth the buzz.

Conversation 2, Page 3

Friend, I must tell you about my new doctor. He has helped me so much with my back pain. From the moment I arrive, he makes sure to give me medication for anxiety, as well as taking the time to introduce himself, and addressing any concerns I have. He explains what will be happening, and tells me to let him know at any time if there is a problem.
He helps me onto the table, and tells me where and to lay. After he positions me just where he needs me, he removes any clothing that blocks the area he is working on. He has Michaela hold a device over my back to help him see where to pinpoint for the needles. He marks them, then injects numbing medicine. Soon he is applying pressure, as he works on the areas where he is injecting steroid medicine. All along he talks me through the pain, the anxiousness, and the stress.
Soon I am feeling so good he and Michaela are having to help me dress and get up off the table. Aware of the effects of the medicine, he smiles as he lends a hand to help me stand. He tells me my instructions, and thanks me for coming. He tells me he looks forward to seeing me again.
He is a great doctor, a blessing. If you have any pain or need for his services, you should call his office. He is very busy, but very good. He helps a lot of people. Make an appointment, and give him a try. You will be glad you did. His name is Dr. Buzzanell. The patients call him Dr. Buzz… for a very good reason… ha ha.

Summary, Page 4
written by Gail Brookshire
Now you know what the differences were, and how easily every days words can be grossly misused, and terribly understood.
We are told the tongue holds the power to life and death (Proverbs 18:21).
We are told soft words can turn away wrath (Proverbs 15:1),
and that words hurt and wound so deeply (Psalm 64:3),
but words heal too (Proverbs 12:8).
May the Lord watch over our tongues, and help us to be careful with our words.

Another way of looking at how we can twist words is those who sometimes intentionally take what was good and pervert it for their own sinful reasons.
We need to remember once we put our words or ideas into someone’s head, it can be hard or impossible to restore the innocent.
We need to be mindful that men are vulnerable to seductive ways, and should NOT be thought of as toys or fun to play with.
They too have weaknesses, struggles, and human needs.
While we are not responsible for their actions, we are responsible for ours.
Our responsibility is to speak Christ.
His loving touch can save and heal better than anyone or anything.
We need to thank those He sends our way,
and be mindful to return the good touch of the Lord.

Discussion Guide, Page 5

1 – Introduction/Fellowship
Read Conversation 1 to allow same effect a rumor would have.
Discuss if or why it could be offensive, damaging.
Let each person have a chance to say something. Do not FORCE people to speak.

2 – Review the Conversation 2
Note words or phrases that seemed offensive or inappropriate.
Talk about those words, comparing how they are not sinful in proper context.
– such as touch (He Touched Me),  pleasure (He made us for His good pleasure).
Discuss lingering effect of not knowing true conversation.
A testimony lingers forever, even when we are gone, whether it is good or bad.

3 – Think of verses referring to the tongue, and how we use our words.
Discuss how if rumors linger too long or before the truth is told, it can make the truth hard to believe, making it possible to permanently ruin a testimony.
In this example, it could ruin the doctor’s reputation, patient’s testimony, and the testimony of the friend overheard talking with the patient/friend.

4 – Discuss how this can be reversed, for example when teens or gossiping ladies intentionally change conversations to hurt, impress, lie, or simply out of carelessness.

Read over and sing the song,

Oh Be Careful Little Eyes
Oh be careful little eyes what you see.
Oh be careful little eyes what you see.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little eyes what you see.

Oh be careful little ears what you hear.
Oh be careful little ears what you hear.
For the Father up above , He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little ears what you hear.

Oh be careful little tongue what you say.
Oh be careful little tongue what you say.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little tongue what you say.

Oh be careful little hands what you do.
Oh be careful little hands what you do.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little hands what you do.

Oh be careful little feet where you go.
Oh be careful little feet where you go.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love
Oh be careful little feet where you go.

Oh be careful little heart who you trust.
Oh be careful little heart who you trust.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little heart who you trust.

Oh be careful little mind what you think.
Oh be careful little mind what you think.
For the Father up above, He is looking down in love.
Oh be careful little mind what you think.
