Evening: Psalm 119:25-48; Mark 15:1-11
James says, “Not many of you should become teachers,” and then speaks about all the evils ignited by the tongue. Better for me, then, to adopt the stance of a learner. I learn a lot from Jesus, who responds to his accusers with just three words, and then is silent. James teaches using words – which is odd, given what he says about the tongue. Jesus embodies his teaching in silence … Wisdom holds her tongue. Maybe I’ve said too much?
