THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil
word nor unwholesome or worthless talk
[ever] come out of your mouth, but only
such [speech] as is good and beneficial
to the spiritual progress of others, as is
fitting to the need and the occasion, that
it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s
favor) to those who hear it. Ephesians 4:29
The word is clear, crystal clear on what
we are supposed to be speaking. What are
you speaking today?
Are your words wholesome and beneficial?
This is a challenge for us all……!
May we learn to release life with the words we
In a moment of anger today I spoke bad about
someone and that was not the right thing to do.
After reading the scripture after the incident I
realized something, there is no situation that will
ever warrant a bad word being spoken!
No matter how bad things get I am to speak life!
Yes, I can confront and deal with what ever is

An important reminder for me too Rolain. It’s easy to do when we feel emotional about someone or are just talking without thinking. May the Holy Spirit give us each the wisdom to think before we speak and edify others with our words…
That is my prayer too Ali.
Wonderful message….especially with all that is going on in the world today! Thank you for the reminder.
You welcome! It’s a reminder for us all….!
Amen!! Practice.. practice… practice! i fly off the handle and get impatient so easily. Like St Paul said…. I do the thingd I don”t want to do……
I need to remain in HIs Word more.. secure to t he vine.
May He help us in those times when we feel tempted to tear others down with our words and may He teach us how to speak to people….We surely need His grace!
And His word!
Have a blessed week and thank you.
Thank you for this post! I needed a reminder ! I will try with Gods help not to be negative in my words!
You welcome….it’s such a test, watching what comes out of our mouths. But with His help we will make it.
My husband and I were discussing this the other day. We felt we were being too critical about events and people while talking so we decided to watch our mouths. Ephesians 4:29 is our verse! (=
It is crazy how easy it is to tear down people! May God help you and your husband as you make a decision to watch your words!!!
