In her Bible study on James, Beth Moore shares that “God can draw people to the gospel by enabling us to speak in ways they understand or our tongues can cause people to hightail it like their heels are on fire. It can bring comfort and courage, or it can bring destruction and deafness. We do have a choice which fire lights our tongues. Just keep in mind that the natural default setting leans south.”
Be kind and uplifting, people! That’s what the world needs … it’s what each and every one of us needs.
