We may not want to admit it, but I would dare to say that if not right at this moment, at some point in our lives, our tongues have been filled with a deadly poison. How do I know this? The Word of God which is filled with wisdom says so, and here is why.
Scripture tells us that:
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. James 3:6
For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. James 3:7,
8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. James 3:9&10
Dear Lord I pray that You will help me to use my tongue in a way that’s pleasing to You, and as the birds dare to accept the food man has to offer, me we as human beings also accept the food that You have given to us through Your Holy Scripture.
