James 1:26 NASB "If anyone thinks himself to be religious, yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this person’s religion is worthless."I stood back in awe and surprise at what I was hearing! Today's verse speaks pretty clearly about what comes out of our mouth and heart can make our walk with Christ worthless! I had to examine my own language when I heard a good christian brother begin to speak in a manner less than honoring to God. In short, it was if every other word that came out of his mouth was foul. I thought to myself, I wonder if I sound like that, confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and using language that would turn most people off! The world has accepted that those foul words are normal today, no one seems shocked by them. I wonder when people hear us speak, can they tell that we are followers of Christ or followers of the world?! Let's let our speech line up with His Word so that our walk isn't worthless, cause people are listening! peace, tom
