Today’s scripture: James 3:5b-12
As I was beginning to write today’s devotional, I really struggled with what to
say. Even after I prayed and started several times, I kept hitting the delete
I feel very strongly about the fact that many Christians “bless our Lord and
Father, and … curse men” with the very same tongue. “… from the same mouth come
both blessing and cursing.” I so agree with James when he writes, “… these
things ought not to be this way.”
I know I sound old-fashioned, but when did it become okay to use really vulgar
words in everyday language? And what makes Christians different from everyone
else when they’re using the same curses others do?
I think the problem is these words have become part of the world’s lexicon. You
hear and read them everywhere.
But think about it. Jesus is with you all the time. He hears your words and
knows your thoughts. What would He want to hear?
Think about it.
