Tasteful Tongue – hmmmm enough said!!!!
Ok – maybe not. The Bible has a lot to say about our tongue.
James uses metaphors from common experience to illustrate his cardinal point that great results can be achieved by small means. The tongue is a small part of the body that is capable of creating great disasters.
Psalm 120:3-4; Prov. 16:27
Tongue is fire. An uncontrolled tongue is likened to a fire that rages out of control.
Staining – evil speech (including blasphemy, gossip, slander, lying, false vows and the like) HAS THE POWER TO STAIN, SPOT AND CORRUPT the entire moral character of a person.
This week we’ll look at how our tongue can built people up and how it can tear people down. Let’s try to build people up this week.
