If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well. Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. – James 3
Very simple. Our tounge is small but it can be very influential in our lives. It can influence our relationships and how we influence other people. Our tounge can ruin a friendship. We all have our really negative friends. They stink. Funny thing is, most times, they do not even know they are stinky and negative. You never know… you could be the negative stinker.
Scripture says “the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness” – James 3

“and set on fire by hell …. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison” – James 3
So, lets work on it…
Let us speak LIFE!
Let us stop spraying the venom of negativity.
Let us tame out tounge.
This is what I am going to do…
