9/25/14 Daily Devotion

James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

Does the tongue have the ability to corrupt our entire being, our entire body? The answer is unequivocally, YES. The utilization of our tongues affects our attitudes, our demeanor, and it even affects our health. How we speak, the words we use carry through our entire system, causing a chain reaction. When we speak gently and compassionately, we are calm and collected. When we speak harshly or offensively, our heart rate begins to elevate, our faces turn red, and our blood pressure can spike to an unhealthy position. Our tongues certainly do affect our entire existence; they certainly do affect our witness for Christ.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me think before I speak.
