“But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. 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.”
We think our tongue is our own,
to lash out as we will-
to wag the way, we see fit
to hiss and whisper about
the fallibility and flaws of
others, even ourselves.
Why would God give such
a murderous weapon to those
so easily beguiled into believing
cutting down instead of
building up is acceptable worship-
is something entertaining?
In the unseen realm
there is great rejoicing
over the hearts of men and women
who plant death on the cheeks
of friends, family and enemies
with kisses, lavishly offered.
We willingly bow down to this
common day idol, because we have grown blind
to our wickedness and its devastating fruit.
Morning meditation – James Chapter 3.
