James 3:2 Taming the tongue
- Taming the Tongue James 3
“We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check” James 3:2
Now we are talking more ab what the Holy Spirit can help US strive towards. I believe that we will never be perfect until we are in heaven, but we can ask God daily to change us and mold us as our Potter. Andrea spoke ab the Potter yesterday.
James was the half brother of Jesus, so that makes Mary, his mom. Mary is known for controlling her tongue and treasuring things that happened to her in her heart. I feel as though I am a fly on the wall, listening to her instruct James as he was growing up…when I read the wonderful book of James!
The 3rd chapter in my. Bible is titled “Taming the Tongue”. Taming reflects something that is wild and uncontrollable – which the tongue certainly is. But may I be allowed to go with my mind in a diff avenue? We also need to use our tongue for His Glory…to encourage daily …to minister those around us who are hurting…to speak up when the Holy Spirit gives us that “unction” / that overwhelming good feeling that we must open our mouth and share the words that He is giving us to say to that person at that moment…to speak the truth in love and not stuff our words and make ourselves sick in the process.
I thank the Lord that he had that we’re jump on top of the page to me thank you Jesus. I’m speaking of the encourage daily 3:13. it would be home to hug someone when they were verbally assaulting you. that would be an extreme control of our tongue but with God all things are possible. He is able.
No one is perfect except Jesus, but He is ABLE to help us when we stumble with saying too much or not enough! Amen!
