See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell. James 3:5
What we say can have a ravaging affect. So the Bible says a sign of maturity is a bridled tongue… one under control.
Sometimes the things I say are fiery and not edifying.
Lord, guard my heart. Help me examine continually what’s happening. I give You, Holy Spirit control of my thoughts and tongue. Make my speech pure and holy.
