James wrote to believers who weren’t living in Israel. He wrote about many subjects on practical Christianity. He wrote on temptations, asking for wisdom, faith, double mindedness, tempting God, good gifts from God, bridling your tongue and anger. This is the first chapter. He wrote a short letter so James put many subjects into it. The one I want to talk about is anger and bridling your tongue. James said, be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger. Anger doesn’t work God’s righteousness. And the only person who can bridle your tongue is the Holy Ghost. Which means you have to submit yourself to the Holy Ghost. Once God gets a hold of your tongue, you will stop saying things that stir up trouble. Then you can share the gospel with the people around you.
