- James 3:3-5, Your words become your reality – Vss. 3-5
- James 3:6 – Words express and In-press the speaker; The purpose of words is to BLESS. With it we bless our Lord and Father. Col.4:6, “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to to answer each person.”
