The Mouth: Small but Mighty

“So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire” (James 3:5, ESV).

This month has been a journey of learning about the mouth, the power it wields, and the need to tame it.

The truth is that every powerful thing needs utmost care and caution. Just like you won’t give a sword to a child, it would be also dangerous to use your mouth without having the right knowledge of the power it possesses. The above text reveals how a little spark can burn down a whole forest, similarly, that little mouth can cause great impact. Now, it is your decision as to what kind of impact you want to make with it. Is it going to be a negative impact or a positive one?

Let us pray

Dear Father, please give me the wisdom to handle my tongue, to use my mouth wisely in every way.

Help me to put my mouth to use in a way that will bring positive impacts and make the lives of people better for good.

Thank you because I know you will help me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
