How much of the pain in our world comes from our words? Through words the world is changed, lives are built up or torn down, and we can make a difference.
Words are such a big part of our lives – which is why James tells us to talk a lot less! It is so hard to keep our words under control. How can we?
James talks about the “source” of the spring. What is the source of our words? If our focus is on Christ, then our words change. If our thoughts are constantly on Jesus, every word that comes out of our mouths will be changed.
