If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight reign on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless (James 1:26).
What, is James saying I talk too much?
It’s frightening to stop and consider how quickly one thoughtless, angry, gossipy, selfish, sinful word can undo the good you’ve accomplished. It rolls off the tongue so easily, and causes so much damage.
Challenge for Tuesday: Control your words. Don’t let what you say undo what you do.
I know it’s not easy, Beloved—that’s why it’s a Challenge, not a Fluffy Rah Rah.
Have a quiet Tuesday.
