On guarding our speech:
When words are many,On anger:
transgression is not lacking,
but the prudent are restrained in speech
The tongue is a fire . . . a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
James 3:6, 8
Fools show their anger at once,And, from James, on both themes:
but the prudent ignore an insult.
Your anger does not produce God’s righteousness.
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.The Scripture is a living text in which we hear God speak today. I encourage you to make plans to be part of one of our smaller groups this fall.
