Jawbone of an Ass

James 3:2 “We all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well.”

Those of us who speak extensively are often reminded of our imperfection. How many times have you felt like you are doing great, until that one unplanned sentence unexpectedly slips out of your mouth? (… and, though you hate to admit it, maybe out of your heart?) Here’s a good prayer for today: “Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips” (Psalm 141:3).

“Remember, Samson slew 1,000 Philistines with the jawbone of an ass (Judges 15:15). Way too many businesses, lives, and relationships are destroyed with the same weapon.’’ — Gary Eby
