Hey there! I'm Tara, and I'm so excited to spend this morning with you! I love chocolate chip cookies, glitter, my dog Sofi, my huge family, frozen yogurt, candles, and summer days at the beach. I love Sunday mornings because I get to spend them with the kindergarten and first-grade kids in K1 Race (Watermark's church service ministry for those grade levels) where we worship God and learn about who He is! Even though fall isn't my favorite season, do you know what is perfect this time of year? Sitting outside by the fire, roasting marshmallows for s'mores, and spending time with friends!

WHAT CONTROLS YOUR MOUTH?

Proverbs 26:13-28

13 The sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road!
There is a lion in the streets!”
14 As a door turns on its hinges,
so does a sluggard on his bed.
15 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish;
it wears him out to bring it back to his mouth.
16 The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes
than seven men who can answer sensibly.
17 Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own
is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.
18 Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death
19 is the man who deceives his neighbor
and says, “I am only joking!”
20 For lack of wood the fire goes out,
and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases.
21 As charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire,
so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife.
22 The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;
they go down into the inner parts of the body.
23 Like the glaze [1] covering an earthen vessel
are fervent lips with an evil heart.
24 Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips
and harbors deceit in his heart;
25 when he speaks graciously, believe him not,
for there are seven abominations in his heart;
26 though his hatred be covered with deception,
his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it,
and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.
28 A lying tongue hates its victims,
and a flattering mouth works ruin.
(ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
for you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.
