Maturity Lesson 7. Tame your tongue

Maturity Lesson 7. Tame your tongue

James 3:1-12

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 

We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. 

Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 

Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 

The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 

but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 

10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 

11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 

12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

 

 

Connect:

Everyone makes mistakes with what they say. A study result shows that an average woman speaks about 20,000 words per day while a man speaks about 7,000 words.  More we talk, there is greater chance to make a mistake.  Can we stop talking and thus stop making mistakes with what we say?  If we keep silent when we have to talk, that can be also considered wrong.  So, we are prone to make mistakes with our words whether we talk a lot or not. That’s why James says that a person who is never at fault in what he/she say is perfect.  As can be seen, our tongue and what we say can have a great impact on our lives.  Can we really tame our tongues? 

 

Hear:

(1) James compares our tongue to many different things, but they all share a commonality.  What is that?  From these comparisons, what can we say about the influence of our tongues?  (verses 3-6)

 

 

 

 

(2) How does James explain the difficulty in taming our tongues?  (verses 1-2, 7-12)

 

 

 

 

(3) James emphasizes the influence of our tongues and the issues that can rise in failing to control them.  What does it mean in the verse 6, ‘it corrupts the whole body sets the whole course of one’s life on fire’?

 

 

 

 

(4) It seems practically impossible to tame our tongues.  However, as James points out the duality of the tongue while emphasizing the believers’ proper lives.  What is the reason for that?

 

 

 

 

 

Reflect:

(5) Do you agree that it’s not right to praise our God while cursing others with the same mouths. What effect does what I say have in the community that I belong?

 

 

 

 

Implement:

(6) How can we edify my communities with what we say?  Let us make some specific goals to reduce the mistakes while having edifying influence in our family, church and our work places.

 

 

 

Seek:

Prayers for me:

 

 

Prayers for my upper room members:

 

 

Prayers for our church:

 

 

Prayers for all nations:

 

 

Think:

Kind words produce their own image in men’s souls; and a beautiful image it is.  They soothe and quiet and comfort the hearer.  – Blaise Pascal --
