Take It Deeper Question
Read James 3:1-12.
Who in your life has stood out as being unusually uplifting in their words?
How have they impacted you and others?
Jesus wasn’t always tame with His words. When is harsh language acceptable?
Why do you think James and Jesus were both stern or harsh with religious insiders?
If your tongue is your rudder or bit, where are your words steering you? What turns do you want or need to make?
How are the words of James focusing you or challenging you today?
