James 3:5… How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire! 6 And the tongue is a fire.
What would James say about today’s culture where merely clicking a “Like” button can stir diverse emotions? Employees have been fired for merely “Liking” a competitor’s product. Relationships have been restored by “Liking” a friend’s post. All from the same finger.
There is much on which I would like to comment, and more that I might endorse, but the implications of a mere click could thwart some from hearing Christ’s message of grace.
Reigns and a bit might guide a horse, but the owner of a tongue and now a mouse button cannot be as easily constrained. Only by the grace of God can our wayward members contribute to building the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
