James 3:3-12 (KJV)
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

These scriptures speak for themselves. It is just a friendly reminder to be observant of how we speak. Yesterday was Sunday and many went with praise on their lips. What is flowing today from those same lips? The church building is not where Jesus Christ resides but in the hearts of humanity. When you have his Spirit within you then wherever you are, is holy ground. So be sure today to do your best to bridle the “little red devil behind the white pearly gates”. You do not want to speak things that would cause any delay in receiving your blessings. Be cautious and receive your blessings; today could be the day you receive your miracle.
