Glass tongues

on August 29, 2014

“If ONLY our tongues were made of glass . . . how much more careful would we be when we speak”?  by Shaun Shane

Our tongues are the strongest muscle in the body, proportionally speaking, so we can lift the spirits of our families and friends. What will you do with that which is in your mouth?  Bridle it or unleash it?  They both make a long lasting impact. Which will you choose?

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers”.  Ephesians 4:29

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue:  and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”  Proverbs 18:21

    The Poem You have quoted is by Poet Shaun Shane and is called Tongues Made of Glass. It is a very famous poem of his. You should credit him if you use it. Here are two links to official postings of Shaun Shane’s Tongues Made of Glass. and here is a youtube video showing the Shane’s poem in his book A Poem Is Nothing.

      Thank you for your insight on this little nugget that was in the beginning of my post. I had no idea where it came from other than through the teachings on the tongue. Someone used it in their lesson, but no reference was made. It spoke volumes to me when I heard it expounded upon and realized if it opened my eyes, it could do the same for others. Thank you again.

    O that we would be slow to speak, slow to anger, quick to hear. Solomon reminds us in Ecclesiates to “let my words be few.” If we, er… I, could get that down. Great post, sister.

    Interesting thought: a glass tongue, oh my. Maybe it would sing like crystal, or thud like a canning jar, may we use it to the edifying of the body of Christ. No sounding brass or tinkling cymbals, just pure holiness to the Lord.
