Choose your words carefully // 15-07-20

“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” Ephesians‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭NLT

‬‬In this chapter of Ephesians there is a whole section on what it means to live as children of light, and this includes how we talk to each other and the words we use! Foul language is just the accepted norm in our society today, it’s considered strange if you don’t pepper every sentence with curse words, but as Christians our language is meant to be seasoned differently, we’re called to be salt, to bring out the best flavour, with the aim to build up, to encourage, to be a blessing! Lord, help me to train my tongue and to guard my mouth today. May others notice a change in my language as I seek to become more like You. Amen 🙏🏼🔥
