“This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.”
JAMES 1:19-22 NASB •
The closer I get to the Lord the more convicted I feel everyday, I’m constantly in a state of asking for forgiveness, It’s so easy to just say something out of spite or say something to “fit in” with a group of people that it’s hard to just stop and think before we say it, and seek the Lord about our speech to see if it’s really of Him. James 3 says “So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell.”
Let us pray that we will guard our mouths and hearts. For it is able to set a forest fire we can’t put out.
