“James’ language about bridling our tongues is not a prescription for how to correct bad behavior, but a description of how we can spot someone who is truly living from that soul center–that implanted word, that spark of divinity, that word made flesh.
A bridled tongue is not enforced from the outside, but intuited from the inside–from the beautiful garden of God’s love implanted in you and me. The bridled tongue is just a symptom of the wisdom of knowing when to listen, when to be quiet and listen. And when to speak, when to be courageous and speak.”
