This Morning! I was spending a little time in the book of James this morning. James is one of those books in the Bible where almost every verse just nails me and the work that I need to allow God to do in and through my life. I can convince myself that I am doing pretty good spiritually and then read James and realize that I have much work to do in the spiritual arena!
Small And Powerful! Take for example this little verse located in James 1:26 “If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.” “OUCH!” Can I say it again? “OUCH!” Can we say it together? “OUCH!”
A Few Quick Thoughts: It does not really matter what you think! Religion can be good or bad – you make the choice with the way that you live your life! If your Religion does not enable and strengthen you to control your tongue, then your religion is worthless! It is possible to deceive your own heart!
Think ABout It! I challenge us all to think about it and then do something about it. I’ve got work to do – how about you? Press On!
