James 3:5-12 (ESV)
So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things.
How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!  [6] And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell.  [7] For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind,  [8] but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.  [9] With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God.  [10] From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.  [11] Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and salt water?  [12] Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives, or a grapevine produce figs? Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water.

Last Sunday Pastor Bell preached from James 3, a text that speaks about how we speak to others. His subject was social media. He did a bang up job. A few days ago I cam across this piece of spoken word and thought I would share it with you. Too bad Pastor Bell didn’t have access to it last Sunday.
