I feel that today’s Epistle was more powerful than today’s Gospel. We are all aware, or at least most of us, of the Gospel passage that reads ‘ What has a man gain if he has everything, but loses his soul”?
Very important and timely. But James’ Epistle talked about how strong our tongues are, meaning, our remarks. Though small, it can change attitudes, ways of thinking, leaving people with despair or hope. A ship may be built strong to challenge the strong winds of a storm, but it is a small rudder that directs it. A stream may feed into a body of water either brackish or fresh water, but not both.
What we say has great power! If you are a true follower of Christ, this is the burden you carry, but once acted upon, yields so much positive results! Have a kind word for those who are in sorrow, have difficulties or are in need of assurance and hope. This is the message of the Good News, the Gospel.
Even if we do not posses the world, we can easily lose our soul. Always, always, be considerate of what you say.

I have been in the Real Estate Industry for 20 years. Originally licensed in New York City, where I held a Broker’s Real Estate License, I have been licensed in Virginia for 14 years and now am an Associate Broker for EXP Realty LLC.
Having relocated myself, I am well aware of questions and concerns that buyers may have who are moving from regions outside of the Hampton Roads vicinity. I have thoroughly researched the area and look forward to sharing this positive info with you.
In my years of Real Estate Brokerage, I have learned that buyers and sellers ultimately want to work with agents who are professional, courteous, and sensitive to their needs. I have incorporated these values in my work ethic and have built long-term relations with both property owners and buyers.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music and have a strong fondness for classical music. I am a constant attendee of the Virginia Philharmonic and an avid listener and member of WHRO-FM. I also have a MBA from Long Island University. I have developed websites and am a firm believer that the majority of all purchases, whether it is Real Estate or the latest DVD movie, originate on the Internet.
