This week my girls had their second horseback riding lessons. They used to figure skate but we do not have a rink nearby in our new town. So, we are trying horseback riding. Before their first lesson, I was sharing with them about tacking up and putting the bit in the horses mouth, and they were surprised by the bit. I had taken lessons in England in the 1970's, and I have had fun explaining things and relearning myself with them again. Anyway, when looking in the Bible, we came across this scripture:
James 3:2-3 "We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check. When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal."
I did not remember that there was a scripture was in the Bible that talked about a bit in a horses mouth. So, that is my scripture tag for today. And I need to remember that a bit is small in a horses mouth yet it can steer such a large animal. The tongue in my mouth is small yet it can be used to build up or destroy. How do I make sure I keep my tongue in check?
