James 3:1-12 teaches us of the importance of tongue. If we can manage our tongue, we can manage and get under control all of our body. These verses give us great examples of how our tongue can bring blessings or curses to us and to others. As Christians we should not use our tongue to hurt others or to say bad things about others. We need to practice to be patient and to use our tongue for good and to bless others. In Christ, we are a new creation, which means our hearts have been changed and our behaviour and tongue have been changed too.
