James 3:2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
The truest gauge for your spirituality is the state of your tongue. Out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. When a doctor is doing a health check he says stick out your tongue – the state of the tongue reveals the state of the patient. James says the tongue is like a rudder of a ship Its small but yet it sets the course of our whole lives. Your words determine your direction. What are you speaking into your future? He also says it is a fire your words can de destructive. They can destroy relationships be careful and chose your words wisely. Finally he says you words are like a spring of water They bring refreshing. Today let’s use our words to bring life to everyone we meet. Speak hope, joy, life and encouragement. Life and death is in the power of the tongue.
Prayer Today: That our words would edify others. That we would be careful in what we say not to hurt others. That we would speak into our destiny and declare the things God says over our lives
