Self Control

Last night the President give his Health Care Reform speech to Congress. During that speech Sen. Wilson shouted out “Lair”. Now the Senator has apologized to the President and the President has accepted his apology. After the comment was made, the President showed amazing restraint as he continued on with his speech and barely acknowledged the outburst.

As  a Christian we can use last night as a teachable moment for all. The first thing we learn as children is self-control. We learn self-control so that we may be able to interact with other people in social setting and so that we can learn to self-sooth.

If you look at babies, they do not learn to self-sooth until they are loved and taught to do so by their parents. We all have our opinion as to why the Senator made his outburst. However, it is unanimous that his comment was rude and unneccessary. Why? because there is a time and a place for everything. Apparently the Senator could not control the emotions that have been boiling under the surface and lost control of his tongue.

Never let anyone or anything cause you to loose control of your senses to the point where you can not control your emotions and most of all your tongue.   

Proverbs 21:23 (New International Version)

  23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue
       keeps himself from calamity.

Guarding your tongue will allow you to stay out of trouble, share love, spread the word of God and start beautiful relationships.
