Me & My Big Mouth
Every Word Counts
Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)
Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
Hebrews 11:3 (ESV)
By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
- You cannot see words – but they have tremendous creative power!
Proverbs 12:6 (NLT)
The words of the wicked are like a murderous ambush, but the words of the godly save lives.
Proverbs 18:21 (GNT)
What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.
Matthew 12:36-37 (NLT)
And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”
Colossians 4:6 (ESV)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
Colossians 4:6 The Message (MSG)
Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.
What are you doing with your words?
Are you using unprofitable words that bring destruction?
Are your words costing yourself & others?
