James taught about the power of the tongue. He compared it to a fire, the rudder on a ship, and the bit in a horses mouth. The tongue is truly a small member of your body. However, it is the member of your body that can do the most harm. Your mouth is like a loaded gun. Your lips are the double barrel of the gun and your tongue is the trigger. The words you speak are the bullets.
Today and every day, commit that unruly member of your body to Me. Ask Me to put the law of kindness on your tongue and ask Me to speak through you the words I want you to speak.
Paul exhorted believers to think on only good things - those things that are true, pure, noble, just, virtuous, lovely and of good report.
Think on Me today. I am pure, true, noble, just, virtuous, lovely, and read the good reports about Me written by those who witnessed My journey on earth. When you do this, you will only speak those words that edify and minister grace to the hearer.
JAMES 3; PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7
