An Unruly Evil
James 3 KJV
This is why I am not a teacher, nor even a teachers aid. I am not worthy to carry the books for our Teacher. I am constantly reminded of how powerful the tongue is and the volume of destruction that can and will manifest in an instant when this tiny piece of flesh is allowed to go unchecked.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 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.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
