Summary

James tells us that a living faith produces obedience. In other words, we know that our faith is genuine when it transforms our lives. What could be more obvious than our speech? We all speak, we all sin, and we must all take responsibility for our words. Because speaking is so easy, it is often one of the last areas that our faith transforms. We need to ask God for godly wisdom (1:5) and humbly rely on His grace (4:6) if we are to see our tongues tamed by God.
