Guard Your Tongue

Pastor Steve Woodfin | September 12, 2021

ourshepherd.net Our Shepherd Lutheran Church, School, Childcare in Birmingham, Michigan 48009 Preacher: Rev. Steve Woodfin Text: James 3:1-12 Most of us have probably heard these words from a parent or teacher: “think before you speak!” And there is great Biblical wisdom in that command. Consider Proverbs 13:3: “He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly comes to ruin.” Isaiah wrote of it. Solomon and the Apostle Paul as well. And in this passage from James chapter 3, God makes it abundantly clear. Our tongues are small, but extremely powerful. They are uncontrollably dangerous. And they are astoundingly inconsistent. So what’s a follower of Jesus to do? What can we do to control this deadly weapon God has given to each one of us? And how in the world does this passage point to the Gospel of Jesus Christ? God’s Word reveals answers to these questions as we, by the Holy Spirit’s leading, seek to live out the words of Solomon in Proverbs 25:11: “A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”
