'Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth'. Ephesians 4;49
What does God see as 'unwholesome' These things;
- jealous words
- gossip spreading
- slagging people
- bitter words
- arguing and or provoking someone else
- * iF ANYONE TELLS/SAYS ANY OF THE ABOVE TO YOU, CHANGE THE SUBJECT POLITELY OR SAY 'I DON'T LIKE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE' OR SAY NOTHING UNTIL THEY GET THE MESSAGE YOU AREN'T THAT INTERESTED.
Lord, we will obey this instruction and we will discover this week WHY You tell us to do this. When we exclude such words and attitudes out of our vocabulary, we are filled with how You want us to talk. In kindness, compassion and UNDERSTANDING as You do us; which we are to do to others. If something slips out of any of our mouths we are to say 'Lord, I forgive them. Amen' and experience for ourselves WHAT that feels like. Because we rememebr that Christ forgives US. Thank You that we will experience what Your words will mean for US this week and on-going. Stop us by the POWER OF YOUR SPIRIT when we are tempted to say what You do not wish us to say and let us speak out the words You place in our minds and mouths instead.How exciting, Lord to wake up to Your loving guidance every day where we learn and gain so much from Your teachings. How wonderful it is to feel forgiven by You and to go on and forgive others. Amen.
