The Use and Abuse of Words

From Series: Lessons For Life, Volume 2

James 3:1-12  (ID: 2924)

Our word choices can cause strife and dissension, or they can encourage, and help the hearers. When our words are honest, thoughtful, gentle, and based on God’s Word, we can build up others in a way that honors God. Alistair Begg encourages us to consider our words carefully and to avoid empty, pithy words that offer no value to the hearer.


Taming the Tongue

1Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
