This past Sunday, our Pastor took us through more of Proverbs. This week we heard what God has to say about our tongues and hurting and healing they can cause.  I wanted to share a great quote with you from the sermon:

“Do you know how many people it takes to split a church? Not half the congregation. Just two. One to start spreading the fiery negativity, and another not to confront that behavior as the sin that it is.”

-Ortlund Jr., Raymond C. Proverbs: Wisdom that Works (Preaching the Word) (p. 132). Crossway  (http://amzn.to/1VQP7h5 )

He unpacks it a little bit more on his blog as well – https://blogs.thegospelcoalition.org/rayortlund/2012/04/27/how-to-rescue-your-church-in-three-weeks/
