Gospel of Matthew: Brood Of Vipers
Jesus is accused of being a glutton, a drunkard, a criminal, a fake, even an evil sorcerer. What his accusers seem to overlook are the powerful consequences of loose talk. This is more than a little sobering for disciples of Jesus some 2,000 years later. Our words have the power to steward faith in Jesus, or to stamp it out. To lift others up, or to bring them down.
