How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire . . . set on fire by hell. James 3:5-6
“James tells us that the tongue is the most dangerous thing we have. . . . We need to pray for help in this terrific battle against the danger of our own tongues. It is my tongue and your tongue which can kindle a forest fire!”
Edith Schaeffer, Lifelines (Westchester, 1982), pages 188-189.
