Small things can have a great impact.  Germs, for instance, are microscopic, but can cause us to become very sick.  White blood cells are also extremely tiny, but, by contrast, can help us recover from being sick.  In the same way, your tongue is among the smaller parts of your body, but it can have a great impact for good or evil.
In the first half of chapter 3, James talks to us about controlling our tongue.  He starts by warning that 1) Teachers Need to Cautiously Consider Their Responsibility.  Secondly, James explains that 2) Careful Communication is a Sign of Christian Maturity.
You have a choice: control your tongue, or let it control you.
James 3:1-5a
