Words are so powerful.Â Â “The tongue is a small part of the body, but it is capable of marvelous undertakings.” (James 3;5)
7-10Â This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you canâ€™t tame a tongueâ€”itâ€™s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth!
10-12Â My friends, this canâ€™t go on. A spring doesnâ€™t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it? Apple trees donâ€™t bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes donâ€™t bear apples, do they? Youâ€™re not going to dip into a polluted mud hole and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you? James 3:7-12, The Message
The application is simply to be aware of the immense power of the words we speak over ourselves and the impact they have on others. Let us use our words to build up, not tear down.
Speak life. That’s what Jesus would do.
