WORD & POWER for TODAY
PERFECT PEOPLE RULE THEIR TONGUES
“For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.” -James 3:2 NKJV
In computer, there is something we call Word Processor. The job of this software is to create, edit, save, and print words. An example of that is Microsoft Word. I realized that God also configured humans to process words before saying them. If you listen carefully to yourself when speaking (or writing), you’d realize that the words come to your mind first, then you will arrange them the way you want (i.e editing), you save them, before you send them out to anyone’s hearing (or sight)!
Brother James agrees that we all make mistakes in many ways. We are not perfect! Because we make many mistakes. If we consider our habits, eating manners, walk styles, fashion sense, social life, etc; we are not perfect! But, he concludes that, if anyone can master what people hear or read from him or her; that person is perfect!
“Who is the man who desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.” Psalms 34:12-13 NKJV. Your words are the Drivers of your life, not your legs! Mind what you say, all the time! Process words first before letting them out of you-even when you’re very angry! Stay away from gossip, especially concerning Servants of God. If you can control your tongue, you’re a perfect person!
