We Can Control A Sharp Tongue
December 29, 2017

We Can Master Our Anger

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

1 Nephi 21: 2

“And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword;”

A sharp tongue can erode any marriage if it is not stopped. Fortunately, this is something that we can become perfect with some discipline. Jesus Christ teaches in the Sermon On The Mount that there are no causes for becoming angry. The Lord can change us into new creatures; and He can change our natures to the point we hardly feel anger. We are agents who can act which mean we can determine how we feel. If we allow someone else to determine how we feel, then we are agents who are acted upon.

Sometimes parents have to reprove but this should always be done with love and to show an increase in love. The prophets teach that parents need to warn their children of things that can hurt them such as sin.

If you live in the Salt Lake City valley, I invite you to join us at church on Sunday's at 1 p.m. We are a mid-singles ward; however, if you have a family please don't let that stop you. Please, join us for for our first meeting which is Sacrament meeting, and make sure you ask someone to introduce you to our ward mission leader. Our address is 7155 South 540 East, Midvale Utah, 84047.
