The Apostle James continues to expose the evils that your tongue can promote. The tongue is duplicit or double minded. “With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.” So true, but deplorable and unacceptable. “Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water?” No! “Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs?” No! “Nor can salt water produce fresh.” Of course not! (Jas 3:9-12). Only Jesus can control your tongue, but you must entrust it to Him and allow Him to!
