Although they are so large and aredriven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the wholeperson, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3: 3-6

Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done inthe humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny thetruth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. James 3: 13-15
