Bible Lesson 7: The Tongue 
Ida went to Kiteigalwa to the teach about the Tongue as requested by the community. She asked the question “What is a tongue “? Eremye said that the tongue is the language we speak. Kamida pulled out her tongue and showed it to the community, they all laughed! Kamoga said that he thinks the tongue is something sweet and bitter. Because the tongue can cause both good and bad things. Ida asked Kagoya to read from the book of James 3:2-12 After the reading Ida told a story of the five mice that were going to visit their friends. On the way they found something that had blocked the road. They all agreed to go and find out what was wrong but were to go one at a time. They went one by one and all came back with different answers to what they had seen. The first to come back reported having seen the spear, the second saw a wall the third saw a tree trunk and the forth saw things that looked like basins. The last one explored the whole scene and got the whole picture of what had blocked the road. The one who saw a spear saw its tail, the wall was its belly, the tree trunk was its leg and the one who saw things that looked like basins saw its ears. The whole thing was an elephant! Its good to explore everything before we act. Most times we tend to only hear phrases and ignore the whole story. When we don’t explore the whole story, we’ll end up seeing parts of the story just like the four mice that saw only parts of the elephant. We must explore the whole thing and find out the whole true story. Let’s stop hearing incomplete stories in order to avoid regrets in future. Use the three sieves to help us speak only words that will build and unite our communities. 1 Is it true? 2. Is it worth to be spoken? 3. Will what am about to say unite? If any question refuses to pass through one sieve, never say a word. Ida concluded by giving the memory verse from Ephesians 4:29. Daudi asked the community to put what Kibo has taught us all three sieves must be used in order to speak only words that are worth. Kamida thanked Kibo for teaching them how to live harmoniously with our neighbors.
