The Tongue

The morning started with a groan and whine as Sawyer put one foot on the floor and opened one eye. It only deteriorated from this point. Harsh words spoken with instant regret caused tears and a wounded spirit. Funny how our tiny tongue can cause so much anguish! Humbly I begged forgiveness and our relationship was restored. Children are quick to forgive. We can learn a lot from them if we just take the TIME!

James 3:5-6 (New Living Translation)
5 In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches.
But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. 6 And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.[
