Ephesians 4:29 NIV, “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.”
This is a great reminder to guard our tongues! Our tongue has the power to speak life or to speak death (Proverbs 18:21). We should strive to speak life and encourage others. The way things are today, we can all benefit from giving and receiving kindness. Using our tongue for good is a sure way to show love and kindness to someone. I pray God gives us discernment to be aware of others, so we can speak life to them and help build them up. Choosing the right words can have an impact that reaches farther than we can imagine.
