The Power in the Words We Speak (5 of 5)

The Power of the Words We Speak Part V

Ephesians 4:29
Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk come out of your mouth, but only such as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace to those who hear it.

If we could learn to always pause for a moment before we say what would most normally just fly out of our mouth, we could spare a lot of hurt and misunderstanding.

Proverbs 16:23
The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips

In other words... I think before I speak because the mind of the wise instructs his mouth. Lets start today by instructing our mouth to only speak those things that are of God, encouraging, and uplifting.

Our words are so important. The power of life and death are in our tongue.
