3Those who guard their lips preserve their lives,but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.

13: 3   You have not mastered self-control if you do not manage what you say. Words can cut and destroy. James recognized this truth when he stated, “The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body” (James 3: 6). If you want to control yourself, begin with your tongue. Stop and think before you react or speak. If you can control this small but powerful member, you can control the rest of your body.
