James 3:5 ” Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.”

In the world small things can have great power.  In the 3rd Chapter of James, he gives examples of a bit in a horse’s mouth, and a rudder of a ship.  And if I asked you what the deadliest animal in the world would be…would you guess a tiger, elephant, or maybe a rhino?  The real  answer is the tiny mosquito that carries Malaria and kills millions of people yearly.  Our tongue is one of the smallest parts of our body…but the power it has is potentially devastating.  For just like one spark can start a forest fire…one ugly slip of the tongue can destroy a life.
