We all use words, whether spoken and written or not. You can tell a lot about someone by how they use their words. Their actions will speak louder, of course, but words will still tell you quite a bit (Luke 6:45).
In James 3, we read about the tongue and the mouth. When you speak with the tongue and mouth, are your words consistent? Just like a fountain can’t give salt water and fresh water out in the same place, your words will be one flavor or another.
So what if you do “mix water”? Salt water and fresh water don’t taste very good mixed together. Even if it is mostly fresh water and only a little salty, it still isn’t completely pure water.
You will be known by how and what you speak.
What kind of words do you use?
Use your words wisely.
