Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
-- Psalms 34 verse 13   (Kings James Bible)

    What we say is so important that it affects other people
    in a either positive or negative way.  More that just mere
    words, the tone and content that it carries can hurt or
    heal the spirit of those in listening range, including that
    of the speaker’s.

    A powerful tool that God has given, yet it does not just
    happen on its own.  Verbal communication of any kind is
    a learned behavior and developed over time.  

    God in His greatness has also given us the power to
    choose how we will use our gift of speech.  Will we use it
    for His glory and praise? … Will we learn how to use it
    more effectively to lift and encourage one another and
    ourselves? … Or … Will we lend our voice to the
    damage of others?

May God’s Word bless and enrich your spirit today.

    the fatherless, plead for the widow.

  • 1 Timothy 5 verse 13
    And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to
    house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies,
    speaking things which they ought not.

  • Colossians 4 verse 6  
    Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye
