Verses like the following provide wonderful
*food for thought* ~
"In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin:
but he that refraineth his lips is wise."
~ Proverbs 10:19 ~
Remember that little childhood song ~
Remember one of the other verses contained within it?
"Oh be careful little mouth what you say!"
"And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity:
so is the tongue among our members,
that it defileth the whole body,
and setteth on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire of hell."
~ James 3:6 ~
How much of my speech is edifying?
How much of it is uplifting?
Not everything I think needs to be said.
Not everything I think ought to be said!
"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."
~ Ephesians 4:29 ~
May the LORD be glorified in all we do and say.
May we minister grace and Truth to
all those we meet along the way.
