Will our words be beneficial today?

"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

 

Today we actually have the power of life and death within us.  Where is this power?  This power is in our mouths.  Proverbs 18:21 says, "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit."  Our words will either build up or tear down others today.  Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:29, "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."  The old saying, "If you can't say anything good, then don't say anything at all," actually does have truth to it!  Today, let's use our tongues to bring life.  One word can change the direction of a spouse, a child, a co-worker, or a stranger today.  One word can bring life or death.  Will our words be beneficial today???

I would love to hear your comments...
