Sunrise James 3:9-10

Words are so powerful.  “The tongue is a small part of the body, but it is capable of marvelous undertakings.” (James 3;5)

7-10 This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can’t tame a tongue—it’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!

10-12 My friends, this can’t go on. A spring doesn’t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it? Apple trees don’t bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes don’t bear apples, do they? You’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.

About These #SUNRISE #WORSHIP DEVOTIONALS: A daily “worship ritual” I practice is to listen to The Daily Audio Bible podcast, take a photo of the morning sky, find a meaningful scripture or quote (usually from the DAB), and share it on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter. Please comment and share! The Lord bless you.
