Such a small fire

"How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!" James 3:5

The fires in Southern California visualize what can happen in our churches. A little fire, set by a mere spark, can whip into a firestorm so intense it burns a whole church. Just one little rumor. That's all it takes.

But "the tongue of the wise brings healing" (Proverbs 12:18).
