Tiger

 

 

 

This is scary: You can tame a tiger,
 but you can’t tame a tongue – it’s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer.
 With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women He made in His image.
 Curses and blessings out of the same mouth!
 A spring doesn’t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it?
 Apple trees don’t bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes don’t bear apples, do they? You’re not going to dip into a polluted mud hole and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you?
 Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts.
James 3:7-13 The Message
