A Small Spark vs. A Great Forest

  • This song is based on James 3:5-12 from the Bible, in which the tongue is described as a small spark setting a great forest on fire:
    "Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one's life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell." (NIV, verses 5-6) >>
