Toothpaste Sermon

     Imagine a tube of toothpaste.  You twist the top off and you begin to squeeze the toothpaste out.  You continue until all the toothpaste is out.  Can you put the toothpaste back into the tube like it was before you began to squeeze?  What you can get back into the tube, will it ever be the same?

     Now imagine the tube of toothpaste is you and the toothpaste itself are the words that come out of your mouth.

We make the mistake of speaking out of our anger or frustration over the pressure we're under.  Or we speak out of irritation or just a desire to be a "smart mouth."  Worst of all is when we just speak whatever comes out of our mouth without any consideration for the feelings of others.  

Our words are powerful.
