Are you like me? Do you have a hard time controlling your tongue? The Bible gives us all types of information about the tongue. In James 3:8 we read that he says the tongue, “Can no man tame; it is unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” A lot of terrible and ugly words can spew out of our mouths. A lot of hurtful words too, which after they’re out, can never be taken back. I can put my foot in my mouth way too often. I’m getting better at not doing it though.
It does seem to comfort me a little, to know that everyone from the beginning of time has had the same problem. But that’s no excuse. We have to be careful. There are thousands of people hurting today because of cruel words spoken to them, either by accident or on purpose. We are to edify one another. We are to lift up and not tear down.
Do you happen to remember the story about Mrs. O’Leary’s cow? The cow knocked over the lantern and one spark caught the hay in the barn on fire, which turned into a huge fire. It hurt and killed many innocent people. Our tongue can be the same way. One spark, one cutting remark, can cause problems for many people for many years.
Look up James 3:5-7 to see how James relates a fire to the tongue. Don’t have what people call a fork tongue — which is saying one thing to one person and saying something else to another person. That’s wicked and it hurts too, and can cause just as much trouble. Be very sensitive to what and how you say things. God is no respecter of persons. We shouldn’t be either. You are special. Don’t forget it!
