May The Words Of My Mouth

James 3:1-12

Most of us have said something we’ve regretted soon after. As the saying goes, “we put our foot in our mouth.” Today we will look at what James has to say about taming our tongue. But how do we go about taming something the Bible says cannot be tamed? The answer of taming our tongues does not simply have us speak less, but speaking purely. In a comparison to horses, ships and forest fires, James helps believers understand why taming the tongue is so important and what’s at stake if we don’t.
