“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths,
but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion,
that it may give grace to those who hear.”
What talk came out of your mouth today?
Was it negative? Critical? Mean?
Or uplifting? Encouraging? Loving?
Ask God to stop you when you are about to say something you shouldn’t. Speaking harshly after the milk has been spilled, the mistake made, or task forgotten, will not change the circumstances or teach a lesson. Speaking with grace, however, will.
What will you say today that uplift or encourage someone? What can you say to show love?
