On James 3



"And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so." Jas. 3:6-10

This was a great clip! We don't necessarily have that getting ready for church but many other times in the week. I saw my own facial expressions on the mother's face. It was truly sobering. I also shared it with several of our children. Thank you!
