Wrestling That Tongue

When you read James' description of taming the tongue, do you ever get a mental picture of an animal trainer, or maybe a rodeo cowboy wrestling a rogue tongue to the ground? In this teaching from that well-known passage from the Book of James, we looked at his description of ships and flames and other metaphors for the tongue-- and we threw in a few of our own, too. A wonderful passage on guarding the mouth from the Church Father Ambrose tied it all up in the end. Join us!
