4 Reasons why you should speak in tongues 

1. Initial evidence of having the baptism of the Holy Ghost. 
And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

Acts 19:6 KJV
2. A divine channel to communicate with God. 
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

1 Corinthians 14:2 KJV
3. That believers may magnify God. It makes God bigger to them. 

Speaking with tongues is a deeper dimension of the spirit of God. 
4. Speaking in tongues is a means of spiritual edification. A means of building yourself up, charging yourself up. 
He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

1 Corinthians 14:4 KJV
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

Jude 1:20 KJV
