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. Ephesians 4:29
Words can make a person or break them. Once you say something it can not be retracted. It is very important to think before speaking. There are times I let my emotions do the talking and oh how I wish I had not. What about you?
If someone is using angry or hurtful words to you it is best to ignore them because responding back will most likely result in a fight. Satan loves hurtful words and he loves anger and when a believer doesn't think before he speaks that's great to him.
Today before you start your day stop and pray that your words would only bring glory to those who hear them.
PRAYER: Today I choose to let my words show your love to those around me. Give me strength when confronted by less than peaceful people and help me respond in love. In Jesus' name. Amen.
