Faith is Demonstrated by our Words
Three things James wants us to do in relation to our words:
- Recognize the danger
- Identify the root
- Confess the sin
With our words we can:
- Build up or tear down
- Bring healing, or cause destruction
- Bless or curse
- Insult or encourage
- Be life-giving or life-taking
Your words can guide and direct the course of your life.
Because: What comes out of your mouth reveals what is inside your heart. And what is inside your heart ultimately directs your entire life.
