Today's sermon was on having a closed mouth, a caring heart and a clean mind. Based on James 1: 26-27. The closed mouth meaning we should watch our tongues. Tongues have a great amount of wickedness in them and you should check your before you send it wagging. Kind of a think before you speak thing. A caring heart being we should love each other like a father loves his child. James 27 mentions visiting widows and orphans. The preachers said this isn't a check in say hello kind of visit. It's a if-you- see-something-needing-fixing-fix-it visit. He used how a father will do anything to make sure his children have everything they need. We should do others the same way.
A clean mind, well that's sort of self-explanatory I think. We should not let our selves be tainted by the crap going on in today's world. We should seek to keep ourselves pure as possible.
