A Few Thoughts On The Tongue

This is my second post on thoughts gathered during the conference, This one is more compact as I didn’t develop the idea fully on the day. I will probably expand on this topic soon

What a wonderful thing it is that Christ has provided atonement for our sins, not least of which is the tongue. James 3 describes the tongue in pretty graphic terms, for example, in verse 9 it calls it a “restless evil, full of deadly poison”, in my experience, and this is a very apt description. James then goes on to tell of how the tongue is used, almost in the same breath, for blessing and for cursing, vs 10. How very often do we do the same? This is something we need to repent of.
