Summary: We should never underestimate the destructive power of the human tongue. Mere insinuation and doubts about a person's integrity are seeds that are easily planted, but they can lead to devastating effects.

Verse: "Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison." —James 3:5-8
