Out of the heart...
...the mouth speaks. (Luke 6:45).
For we all stumble in many ways. If someone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect individual, able to control the entire body as well. (James 3:2 NET)
This is why, if we do not stumble in what we say, then our heart is clean.
So what James is saying is that we shouldn't rush to be teachers, until our hearts are in a good place.
