April 2 – James 3
LOOK: “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.”
LISTEN: Oh, be careful little mouth what you say… This is one of my favorite of the James teachings. I love how he describes the power of the tongue like an animal, a fire, a ships rudder. We should listen to James and understand the power our tongues have to hurt, kill and destroy. We should also understand how our speech can be positive too!
LEARN: What’s coming out of your mouth lately? Is it positive or negative? Uplifting or cutting? Beneficial or harmful? Evaluate and determine your next course of action.
