Controlling the tongue
(JAMES 3: 1-12)
- We all make mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.
- The tongue is a small thing that can makes grand speeches.
- But, a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.
- And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.
- People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish, but no one can tame the tongue.
- Sometimes, it PRAISES our Lord and Father, and sometimes it CURSES those who have been made in the image of God.
- And, so blessing and cursing come pouring out from the same mouth. Surely my brothers and sisters, this is not right!!!
- We all human! Who are weak and have weaknesses. But, by having God in our life, the weak become strong, the poor become rich. Nothing is impossible with God. But, its all depend on us. Are you willing to change? Don't keep on praying without action.
- Remember, prepare your field to receive the rain.
