The Apostle James explains that “all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind” (3:7). But there is something we cannot tame – our tongues. “No human being can tame the tongue” (v.8).
While our words may be on the tip of our tongue, they originate from deep within us. “The mouth speaks what the heart is full of” (Matt12:34). And thus, the tongue can be used for both good and evil (Jms3:9).
God however, will not leave us, He will set a guard over our mouths and keep watch over the door of our lips (Ps141:3). God can tame, the untamable.
To rule your tongue, let Christ rule in your heart.
