This Sunday at Dakota we will continue our study in the book of James with a further examination of the deadly power of the tongue.
We have looked at the seriousness of careless speech especially for teachers and those whose words carry added responsibility because of authoritative influence. We will now follow James further along this path as he drives home the point by giving us five convicting illustrations of the tongues ability to cause harm. It seems the author is intent on not allowing us to just flippantly nod a thoughtless agreement that we need to be more careful about our speech, he wants us to dwell on this issue — and so we shall.
I hope you will join me for this 20th instalment in the Epistle of James which I have entitled; “Poisoned.”
