Introduction –

  • The tongue is a tattletale, it tells on the heart, and is the revealer of the heart.
    • Matthew 12:34   ܡܬܝ ܝܒ:34

James gives us five compelling reasons for the control of the tongue.

  1. The tongue has the potential to condemn (vs. 1-2a)ܓܲܪܫܵܢܵܐ ܠܕܝܼܘܵܢ
    • Let not many become teachers (vs. 1)
      • The word is didaskalos (did-as’-kal-os), it’s translated “master”
      • James 1:26ܝܥܩܘܒܼ ܐ:26  
      • Leviticus 10:3ܟܗܢ̈ܐ ܝ:3  
    • We shall receive a stricter judgment Krima (vs. 1)ܕܝܼܘܵܢ ܒܘܼܫ ܙܵܘܕܵܐ ܒܸܬ ܩܵܒܠܵܚ
    • We all stumble in many ways (vs. 2a)ܣܵܒܵܒ ܪܵܒܵܐܒܸܓ̰ܪܵܛܵܐ ܝܘܵܚ ܟܠܲܢ (ܓ̰ܲܪ. 2ܐ)
      • II Chronicles 6:36ܒ. ܕܒܪܝܡܝܢ ܘ:36 
      • Matthew 12:34-37ܡܬܝ ܝܒ:34 – 37 
  2. Tongue has the power to control (vs. 2b-5)ܚܲܝܠܵܐ ܕܙܲܒܛܸܢ
    • And able also to bridle his whole body (vs. 2b)ܡܵܨܹܐ ܙܲܒܛܸܢ ܐܘܼܦ ܠܟܠܹܗ ܦܲܓܼܪܹܗ
      • Psalm 39:1ܡܙܡܘܖ̈ܐ ܓܛ:1 
    • Illustration #1: Horse (vs. 3)ܣܘܼܣܵܐ (ܓ̰ܲܪ. 3) 
      • By controlling the tongue, the whole life is directed to a useful purpose.
    • Illustration #1: Ship (vs. 4)ܓܵܡܝܼ (ܓ̰ܲܪ. 4)  
      • Power applied at the right point is sufficient to control the whole vessel.
  3. Even so, the tongue is a little member, but boasts great things (vs. 5a)
  4. Powerfulthing is the tongue.  And if we get a hold of it and control it, it can control all the rest of us. 
  5. Tongue has the power to destroy or condemn (vs. 5b-6a)ܚܲܝܠܵܐ ܕ ܬܲܠܩܵܐ ܝܲܢ ܦܲܪܦܸܣܵܐ
    • Proverbs 15:28ܡܬ̈ܠܐ ܝܗ:28 
    • Proverbs 16:27ܡܬ̈ܠܐ ܝܘ:27
