Today is Sunday, the 29 day of May in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Luke 14:28.
For we all stumble in many things, if anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole bodyJames 3:2.
Now what does God say about the power of the tongue.
According to the above scripture, it is the tongue that has power over the body.
Therefore, whoever wants to control his or her body must start by watching or controlling his tongue.
Now let’s see the context of the above scripture to understand the passage more better:
Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body.
Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.
Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.
See how great a forest a little fire kindles!
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.
For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.
But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.
Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.James 3:3-10.
As we can see, the tongue is small but mighty.
So in conclusion, we must all learn to watch what comes out of our mouth in order not to put ourselves in trouble.
