Just a Spark
The tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts (James 3:5). The tongue, small as it is, can lead to disastrous results. We control automobiles with a small steering wheel, we control powerful tools with just the touch of the hand... but our tongues as small as they are have the power to set the world on fire. Why is it so hard to control something so small? We should be quick to listen and slow to speak, but many times it’s just the opposite. As God for help controlling you tongue and regulating your mind. Our small tongues are powerful, but our big God is more powerful. His help on a daily basis provides the strength to rein in and guide our words... all it takes is a spark.
