No More Unwholesome Talk

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) 

If you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all.  So often our tongues are used to bring down, to destroy, to speak evil about others.  Corrupt means foul, polluted, and rotten.  Be careful what you say and how you say it.  Use your mouth to edify others.  Don’t put others down with your tongue.  Rather use your tongue to lift up others.  If you can’t find anything good to say about someone, talk about something else.  Do not use obscene language.  Don’t talk about dirty jokes and immoral suggestions.  Let NO foul or rotten talk come out of your mouth.  You will never know how your words can discourage and hurt others.  But speak words that will build up the believer.  Speak words that will lift up spirits.  Speak words that will comfort others.  Speak words that will strengthen others.  Speak words that will edify others.  ”Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” (Psalm 141:3)
