How long does it take to destroy a relationship? The answer is, sometimes, not very long. The New Testament book of James 3:1-12 informs us how deadly and righteous our speech can be, and how hard it is to control. Because, it can bring death to a relationship and it can bring life. The death part is easy, but the life part, well, not so easy. (Satan wants to destroy you)  I have noticed that some folks are good at clearing the air, and some folks like stinky air.  But, most of us like clean air but just don't know how to clear it up. My wife knew, always does, I had to clear the air with my Mom, of all people, and would tell me to talk to her. Well, I finally did and it is good to breath clean air again. If, in fact you are partaking in polluted air in a relationship I highly advice you to Clear The Air as soon as possible. I'll say it again it is really good to breath clean air.  

"And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself." Jame 3:6
