Ephesians 4:29


"Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." ESV


These days it seems we are all critics of others. Maybe we think so highly of ourselves, the flaws in others stand out so clearly. Perhaps we think so lowly of ourselves, we speak of the faults in others so we don't look so bad in comparison. Then it could just be that our minds are set toward a negative perspective about most things. Negativity steals our joy and eager anticipation of the future. Worse yet, it does the same thing to those who hear us spew our negativity. Just like a corrupted file on a computer, our corrupt talk stops the flow of God from coming through our lives.


Heavenly Father, please search our hearts and allow us to identify any negative thought that might come out of our mouths in words. Guard our minds and our lips so that what we speak will encourage and lift up those who hear us. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
