Which Word

James 1:19-21

19 You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness. 21 Therefore rid yourselves of all sordidness and rank growth of wickedness, and welcome with meekness the implanted word that has the power to save your souls.” NRSV

Sage advise!

The key is always, whose word are we speaking? James indicates that there are “our words,” the ones we speak that get us in trouble, and God’s word, that gets planted in those who put their faith and trust in God. The true journey of faith is about learning how to know the difference and, once we know the difference, do our best to live by the Word of God.
