James 3:9 – It’s Pure or It’s Mixed (June 13)

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Monday. June 13th. The 2nd day of the Hebraic week.

Our verses today is James 3:9, 10.

James 3:9
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.

James brings out some thoughts here that are all too often glanced over too quickly or not even looked into at all. Do you focus on what comes out of your mouth? Consider the following verses in how James continues.

11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

James is actually giving examples here to show it’s one or the other. These things can’t be mixed. The second salt water is mixed with fresh water, it’s no longer fresh water. So how can one who gives praise to YHWH curse his brother? What does that do to the praise in the eyes of YHWH?

I think that is the key here. How YHWH sees things is what matters. We may be able to separate things in our view, but in the eyes of our Heavenly Father, it’s either all pure or it’s mixed.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
