Friends in Christ Weekly Message
September 16, 2006

     A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything - or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell.
James 3:5-6 (Message*)

Have you ever said something, and then regretted it, either immediately or some time after? I know I have. Once you've said something, you can't erase it.

James warns us that we can cause a lot of damage by what we say. So we need to exercise restraint so that our words may be edifying rather than destructive.

Bill Samuel
