This section of James’ letter shows us a true faith in Christ will be displayed by restraining the words that proceed from our mouth. Spoiler alert – none of us do this perfectly and together we will discover practical ways to use our words in constructive ways.
What does it mean for the Lord to be our Shepherd? According to David in Psalm 23, it means that we shall never be in want of anything. We will be made to slow down, quiet down, and sit down.

Many of us know the Psalm… Let’s make sure we know the Shepherd.
