Saturday: Fire in the Church
“In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself. People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish, 8 but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison.” James 3:5-8, New Living Translation (NLT)
Today think about a time when something you (or someone else) said caused great harm to Christ’s church or people. Confess this story to a faith community leader. In what way can words also bring healing to this story?
