The human tongue can be a destructive force. The human tongue can also be a tool of grace.
We use bits in the mouths of horses to make them obey us. The rudder of a ship will steer it in any direction we want it to go. The tongue is only a small part within the human body, yet it has the power to put us on a course that can be good or bad, helpful or destructive. In the words of the Apostle James, "And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the whole course of nature, and it is set on fire by hell (James 3:6)." Now that's a serious indictment of our little tongue!
