Taming the Tongue . . . and the Thumb
Play • 37 min

In this final episode of the first season of Let's Talk, Jasmine Holmes, Jackie Hill Perry, and Melissa Kruger talk about taming the tongue—both in face-to-face life and online. We may dismiss sins of speech, from gossip to complaining to tearing someone down, as minor. But James compares the damage our words can do to a blazing forest fire lit by just a spark (3:5).

Jackie points out that Christians often say online what they would not say to someone's face. But if we truly fear God, we would honor him with our online speech. Melissa talks about how gossip breeds false intimacy in the moment, but ultimately destroys trust in a friendship. And Jasmine recommends safeguards to avoid rash speech online so that we don't get carried away and have to publicly apologize later.

Today’s episode of Let’s Talk is brought to you in part by International Justice Mission. IJM is a global nonprofit working to end slavery and violence around the world. To get an idea of what this work looks like, take this story from South Asia: Several families living in slavery were being brutally abused, poorly fed, and forced to sleep outside in make-shift tents. When IJM and local authorities heard about the abuse, they planned a rescue operation to set these families free—and that operation took place in March of this year, setting 50 people free. You can help make this kind of restoration possible by becoming a Freedom Partner and sending IJM to rescue others. Freedom Partners give a monthly gift to IJM, so IJM teams can show up month after month to rescue people from slavery and walk with survivors as they heal. Visit IJM.org/LetsTalk to join today.

Rebuilding Your Marriage with Kevin Myers
Hey friends! We’re kicking off a mini-series on marriage this week, and I couldn’t be more excited to share this conversation with you! Marriage is a beautiful and life-giving experience for many of us because we have a trusted partner by our side to celebrate the good times and weather life’s unexpected storms. But sometimes the storms can begin to overwhelm the relationship, and we can easily find ourselves in a relationship that looks nothing like it did when it began. Today, author and 12Stone Church senior pastor Kevin Myers and I talk about tackling common marriage problems, rebuilding our relationships, and making them stronger than ever before. We also talk about his book The Second Happy along with seven strategies to rebuild your marriage, how to use prayer to work on internal problems that help us (and our spouse!), and how to evict the elephants in your marriage. Listen in to hear: * How fighting fairly allows for intimacy in a relationship and how this intimacy helps us grow closer as a couple and with God. * How to view conflict resolution through “buckets” and when to apply water on your issues instead of gas. * How God can help us with our marriage through thoughtful and intentional prayer. Favorite quotes: 1. I think a lot of times people feel the weight of carrying both sides of the problem and you can't. You can only carry your side. 2. You realize in the life of ministry, if you're really devoted to helping people, that some things are broken that they can't fix and only God can fix. 3. Everybody in the church carries two buckets and you're either adding to harmony or conflict, but you're never neutral. 4. We tend to use marriage rather than build it, because we're trying to build so many other things in our world. 5. You cannot consistently pray over someone you love and consistently despise them. In this episode I answer this question: What’s your take on the law of attraction? (36:52) Great things we discussed: 1. Kevin Myers at 12Stone 2. The Second Happy: Seven Practices To Make Your Marriage Better Than Your Honeymoon 3. Stairway to Heaven 4. The Mandalorian 5. Change Your World 6. Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secrets 7.
