Daily Devotional: Tongue as a Teaching Tool

by PamFord Davis  



I’m serious when it comes to food temperature; I like my hot foods HOT. There’s something else I like; that’s soup. It just might be at the top of my comfort foods list. Today, I got what I like.

An area church held an association missions meeting. I was pleased to find a variety of crock pot soups at the luncheon and chose hearty vegetable. It was piping hot. In my haste to eat and rush home, I ate too fast.

As much as I enjoyed the soup, I didn’t like burning my tongue. Strange, but I didn’t even notice that I had until my hour long drive back home.

God used the burning sensation on my tongue as a teaching tool.

“Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 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 course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so (James 3:5-10 NKJV).”
