Takes Off Like Wildfire

In James 3, the apostle illustrates the power of the tongue. Drawing on common things like a horse bit, a ship, or a forest fire, James points out the destructive power of an unbridled tongue and the positive power of a controlled tongue. If we do not confess Jesus as the Messiah, we will end up saying something else. One thing can build up, and the other can tear down. What we say and what we confess reflects our faith.
