We would do well to restrict our tongues to this one use.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. Yah made everything with a specific purpose, and that boils down to our appendages and body parts tied to our senses. But, most importantly, everything was made to praise his name and bring honor to him. That means that the hands should only be used to work righteousness; that should be their one purpose. Just as the ears hear—as their sole function—and the eyes see—but do not hear or smell or taste—we are to restrict all our members to a specific use.
Even when it comes to our body getting rid of waste, the urinary tract and the rectum have unique functions, and one cannot replace the other or be substituted for the other. In the same way, we should restrict one of our most dangerous bodily members, the tongue, to one function: that of praising and blessing Yah.
8 . . . No human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our Master and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of Elohim. 10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.
—James 3:8 – 10
