In this podcast, I share with you from James 3:1-12. I don’t want to be overly dramatic. We’re so used to hearing exaggerated speech these days that I think most of us tune it out. And in a world full of violence, to equate mere words with flying bullets seems like just more over-the-top hyperbole trying and failing by its very nature to make the point. Yet if more of us took the same care with our words as we would with a loaded gun, much pain and suffering could be avoided. We all bear the wounds. Time can heal them, but they always leave scars. As you can never put the bullet back into the gun once it has been fired, you can never recall a word once spoken.
If you don’t have time for a listen, This blog post gives a little more background for the message. Though the delivery could use some polish, I consider it one of the most important things I have shared in my short time as a part time preacher.
