Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Our tongues or mouth can easily get us in trouble. We need to be careful what we say. Our tongues can often be sharp cutting people by the words that flow from them. Too often we are careless by the things we say, not realizing the impact that it might have on someone else. We need to be wise in choosing our words. We need to listen to the Holy Spirit and check our words before they proceed from our mouths. The Holy Spirit is here to help us guard our speech. Ephesians states our speech should be beneficial or bring edification. Our speech should build up not tear down.
Sometimes, people do not think words matter but the words that we say are a powerful force. Think back about words that have been spoken to you in the past by someone that was significant in your life. Were the words positive, building you up? I have heard parents speaks words to their children “you’re stupid,” “you will not amount to anything,” or “why are you not like so and so.” Recollections of past things spoken to us can either bring great joy or cause us sadness. Our words have the same effect on those around us, especially young people. Allow the Holy Spirit to help you take an inventory of your speech. By God’s grace, His enabling ability be kind and speak words that uplift. Colossians 4:6a (AMP) “Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), …….”
