“Tongue control? It will never be achieved unless there is first of all heart and mind control. When any Christian comes to the point of yielding to the Lord in full sincerity, cost what it may control of his thought life, the problem of managing his tongue will be solved, provided that such a surrender goes deeper than the intellect and reaches the emotions and will. For the Bible makes a distinction between mere intellectual knowledge of God and the trust of the heart.”

Frank E. Gaebelein, The Practical Epistle of James: Studies in Applied Christianity (Great Neck, N.Y.: Channel Press, 1955), 80-81.

Children’s Story Bible

The Children’s Story Bible, by Catherine Vos was recommended to us by our friends Neil and Krista Joiner. I haven’t yet seen it, but from the looks of it on Amazon, it seems like it’s holding it’s own over the years. It seems a bit more wordy and might be difficult for younger children, but perhaps it’s a good habit to challenge the children to listen and challenge the parents to teach in a way that will communicate the stories of the Bible to the children.
