James Chapter 3:1-6

For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body.

James 3:1-6
1
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
2
For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body.
3
If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well.
4
Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs.
5
So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!
6
And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell.
