James 3:9-10 gwt


Those who praise God and curse people are hypocrites.
Though they claim virtue and morality in truth they are deceitful.
 James asks, “Do clean and polluted water flow from the same spring?”
Just as there is no deceit or hypocrisy in Jesus there is to be none in us.

Are we honest in our praise if we curse one another?
Where is our love for God and one another when we curse His creation?

Blessings this day of grace,

  1. This reminded me of the parable of washing. We wash the outside but not the inside. This where I rely on the Holy Spirit to guard my thoughts and tongue.

    • It is true we can be oh so pretty on the outside and ugly on the inside. Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” We must guard our hearts.
