I’ve been stupid lately and have said a great many stupid things. I keep thinking about what St. James wrote: “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison” (James 3:6-8).

It’s easy to feel unassailable in an imaginary world. But in the real world, I’m not grounded. I need to work on building up a real foundation.
