Spriritual Checklist for the week of March 6, 2023


Monday, March 6

Am I controlling my tongue?

James 3:1-12 (NIV)

Taming the Tongue

1 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check. 3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. 4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. 7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Am I honest in everything I do and say?

Colossians 3:9 (NIV)

Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices


Wednesday March 8, 2023

Am I being faithful to promises and commitments I've made?

Matthew 5:37 (NIV)

All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.


Thursday March 9, 2023

Am I working on areas of my life that need correcting?

1 Timothy 4:7 (NIV)

Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.


Friday March 10, 2023

Are there areas of my life that would shame me if they became known?

Psalm 90:8 (NIV)

You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.


Looking forward to seeing you Thursday night at 7pm at home group to discuss these questions together!
