Welcome to day 31 of our James Bible Study! Today, let’s unpack the rest of the verses discussing taming the tongue! *I probably need this lesson more than anyone today! Please, tell me I’m not alone! Boy, the things that get me riled up…
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James 3:9-12 (NIV)
What are your thoughts today? Have you been struggling with taming the tongue? Does this chapter make you feel better or worse about the challenge of your tongue?
Today, write out your memory verses, James 1:1-7 and see if you can do it without looking it up. How’d you do?
