Valley News and Views Page 7 May 16th, 2013 Occasionally I turn my computer and go to Facebook. There are humorous "posts". There are cleaver "posts", and there are pictures of family, nature, or some other interesting feature. Then too, you will run across a post displaying a prayer or statement about God's goodness, faithfulness, and love. Right below it the same person may post a saying filled with that which is vulgar, crude, or hateful. When reading these I am reminded of James 3:8-12. James refers to the tongue as being resistant to any form of control, and "an unruly evil, full of deadly poison" (v:8). In the verses following James explains himself - "Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it breaks out into curses against those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth...this is not right" (NLT). James compares this to a fountain or spring - "Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water?" Using another example James reminds his readers that a fig tree does not produce olive berries, or '% vine, figs" (v:12). This is an impossibility, just as a fountain can not yield both fresh and salt water. What does this say about the person who both praises God and spews forth vulgarities? Perhaps the person is not truly a child of God, but has a heart that longs for God's presence (but has not found it). Or it could be he/she is a Christian, but has not learned to yield the tongue to the holiness and purity produced by the indwelling Holy Spirit. In either case, heavenly wisdom, which is pure, peaceable, gentle, full of mercy and good fruits, and devoid of hypocrisy (v: 14-18) can be found through God's Spirit.
