We often hear of the danger of guns, knives and bombs, etc, but the human tongue is perhaps the most dangerous instrument in existence. As small as it is, it has done an incredible amount of damage. Today we will begin a two-week look at what James has to say about our tongues.
16. The 2 1/2 Ounce Monster (Part II) 08/16/2020
Text: James 3:7-12
Last week we examined the destructive nature of our tongues. The tongue is an out-of-control fire that can do widespread damage. Today we will look at how our tongues can be controlled. James said that no man can tame them, but that doesn't mean there is absolutely no way to fix our speech. Our study will take us to the words of David and Paul as well as those of James.
17. Show Me Your Wisdom 08/23/2020
Text: James 3:13-18
James 3 concludes with important words concerning true wisdom. There is a wisdom of this world; we seem to be born with it actively directing our old nature. We should not live by the wisdom that comes from within or from below; we need the wisdom from above. "Show Me Your Wisdom" is our study in this message.
