A Taught Tongue

James reminds us that the tongue is a restless evil full of deadly poison. Like a wildfire it starts small but can set the world on fire. Is there hope for us to control our tongues?

Jesus’s healing of the mute boy with an evil spirit is our first clue today of the hope we have to control our tongues and use them for good. Our OT reading from Isaiah gives us a second clue in what we call the third Servant Song. This servant, fulfilled in Jesus, is given a taught tongue. It is one that hears and then speaks only the truth of God’s Word. Redeemed and empowered by this life of Christ we too can have a taught tongue.
