Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3:5-6
The littlest things cause the greatest troubles. That’s the tongue but the problem is not the tongue; it’s the truth. The truth isn’t a problem unless we’re not treasuring it or telling it. The tongue is tied to what we really believe and Jesus said that out of the mouth, the heart speaks (Luke 6:45). Again, our words determine our walk. The best thing we can do for the tongue is to give it the truth. The key to a good tongue is the true heart Jesus gives us.
