Opening Prayer: Almighty God, shape me by the power of Your Holy Spirit that I may love and serve you more perfectly today. Amen.

Read: James 3:1-12
Reflect: Do you think James gives too much power to the tongue? How have you seen the tongue do more damage than such a small part of the body should be able to do? What can you do to protect yourself from causing damage with your words?

Prayer: for the church, for others, and for myself

Hymn: “In Heavenly Love Abiding”
In heavenly love abiding,
No change y heart shall fear;
And safe is such confiding,
For nothing changes here.
The storm may roar without me,
My heart may low be laid,
But God is round about me,
And can I be dismayed?

Wherever he may guide me,
No want shall turn me back;
My Shepherd is beside me,
And nothing can I lack.
His wisdom ever waketh;
His sight is never dim.
He knows the way He taketh,
And I will walk with Him.

Green pastures are before me
Which yet I have not seen.
Bright skies will soon be o’er me,
Where darkest clouds have been.
My hope I cannot measure;
My path to life is free.
My Savior has my treasure,
And He will walk with me.

Closing Prayer: “Praise be to the Lord forever! Amen and Amen” Ps. 89:52
