The Apostle James states that your tongue may be an instrument of evil motivated by the fire of hell. “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 continues, “For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison (Jas 3:5-8). Only Jesus can harness your tongue as you entrust yourself to His gracious control!
