Preachers need to be careful with the tongue in front of the congregation because you can trigger a fire among the forest and cause great damage. Your words either nurture growth or tear down; however, one must not confuse pruning with tearing down, for faithful preaching will prune fruitless branches for the sake of growth in fruitful branches. But be careful, lest you confuse setting the forest aflame as pruning.
