  • 5. 1) What I say directs where I go. “When we put bits inthe mouths of horses…we can TURN the whole animal.” (James 3:3NIV)

  • 7. 3) What I say can destroy what I have. (vs 5-8)“Consider what a greatforest is set on fire by asmall spark. The tongue is also a fire…It sets the whole courseof his life on fire, and isitself set on fire by hell. (vs6b)

I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like on of your hired men.’” (Luke 15:17-18 NIV)
  • 12. 6) What I say can be a confession and belief. “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
