I’m working on a sermon for Sunday. Continuing in the Biblical book of James. A book strong in action.
The third chapter talks of the tongue and it’s ability to harm or help. Then the statements go into a discussion of wisdom.
I remember that the original writings had no paragraphs. They were just strung together. You needed to figure out the flow of the content yourself.
Unfortunately some times the contemporary paragraph breaks throw off that flow. In James 3 the tongue is discussed, then wisdom. As though they were two separate thoughts. But, perhaps not. Perhaps the way to get past wise cracks that are silly is to come to a deeper understanding of wisdom that changes the heart, so that from the inside the tongue speaks.
Well, at least that’s the start of the sermon. We’ll see what evolves by Sunday!!
