Out of the Same Mouth

20170317_130233

“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea

are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil,

full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise

our Lord and Father, and with it we curse

men, who have been made in God’s likeness.

Out of the same mouth come praise

and cursing. My brothers,

this should not be.”

 

James 3: 7-10

What Good Is It?

20160509_124822

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.

If one of you says to him, ‘Go I wish you well; keep warm

and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs,

what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself

if it is not accompanied by action,

is dead.”

 

James 2: 15-17

He Who Does These Things

20170415_115623

Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary?

Who may live on your holy hill?

He whose walk is blameless

and who does what is righteous,

who speaks the truth from his heart

and has no slander on his tongue,

who does his neighbor no wrong

and casts no slur on his fellow man,

who despises a vile man but honors

those who fear the Lord,

who keeps his oath even

when it hurts, who lends

his money without usury

and does not accept a bribe

against the innocent.

   

He who does these things

will never be shaken.

    

Psalm 15
