Patient Speech James 5:12 – 18

Because James is focusing on the importance of patience, he desires to show how vital it is in every area of life. Even the way we speak is affected. The words we use and the topics we discuss are to be laced with patience and perseverance. James gives his readers instruction on their speech, both their public promises and their public prayers – the way they speak to one another, and the way they speak to God.
