My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses ‘ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth ! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. (James 3:1-6|KJV)
One part of the body that is seemingly small is the tongue. As small as it is, it plays significant role in the body.
Today, the Word of God is reminding us of the need to be careful how we use one of the smallest parts of our body – the tongue. Yes, the tongue is very small, yet it is what we use in talking. People use it to bless and curse, praise and abuse. The point you need to know as a child of God is that though others may misuse their tongue, you cannot afford to. This is because you belong to Christ, thus everything you do must be to His glory.
Small things are sometimes powerful. Those things we perceive as small and insignificant have the prospect of causing havoc beyond human comprehension. There are certain parts of the body we see as super and indispensable but the fact is that no part of the body is insignificant. Those who are without a particular part of the body will tell you that no part is useless.
CONSEQUENCE OF USING THE TONGUE UNWISELY
As powerful as the tongue is, it can cause your down fall.
Say good things to yourself, decree great words to your future.
Pray to the Father to help you keep your tongue, so that you will not be destroyed by it
