- I spoke with a friend about our relationships and the conversations we share.
- We talked about how in a conversation, we “give and take” with our words.
- It is our responsibility to ensure the words we give others are good, profitable, edifying and give God glory.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
In our conversations, are our words building people up or leaving people in tatters?Tweet
BCUFam, with the help of the Lord, let’s be intentional about asking the Lord what to say so that our words we are a blessing to those we interact with. Sure, we may have to have a challenging conversation with someone, but that doesn’t mean evil communication has to be a part of that exchange. If we speak what God tells us to say, our responses will always be perfect. Amen? Amen!
