Morning Thought: Your tongue is an instrument that can bring unity. God desires his people to “serve him shoulder to shoulder.” But the Lord says it’s only possible when he purifies our lips. Today, use your mouth to build up rather than tear down. Ask your Father to cleanse your lips for his glory. “Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the Lord and serve him shoulder to shoulder” (Zephaniah 3:9 NIV).
