"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

James 3:1-18
For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue.

How's your speech? What bubbles out when you are angry? How quick are you to comment when things don't work out the way you hoped? Who is suffering right now because of the words that you spoke over them? is there more wisdom in our words or in our silence? What do the words we use have to say about our spiritual condition? 

James wants to tell us that "what we say = what's inside" and we may have not just a mouth issue but a heart issue as well. The saints have told us from ancient times that "what comes out of the mouth finds its source in the heart." Join us as we study the ancient text to filter our modern hearts that stream out poison and praise.
