Teaching - A high calling

July 19 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Scripture
My bretnern let not many of you become teachers, knowing we shall recieve a stricter judgement. James 3:1
Observation
This letter iw written to the 12 tribes (believers) who are dispersed. James has dealt with how to act under trial, being dooers of the word and not just hearers and the necessity of active faith. NOw he is going to deal with the poison of the untameable tongue and he begins by calling teachers and leaders to a higher level of accountability.
Application
I need to take very seriously my teaching ministry. This needs to begin with my personal time with the Lord but primarily needs to be reflected in my speech.
Prayer
Lord, thank you for the gift of teaching and prophecy. Help me to be always mindful of the weight this priveledge carries. Help me to hld my tongue until what I say only brings glory to You and edifies others.
