Ephesians 4:29 ESV "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."It seems so easy and yet sometimes our mouth can speak faster than our brains can think! Today we read about our words and how they can either tear down or build up, it comes down to choice! No sooner did the words leave my mouth, that my brain realized that what I said and how I said it would cause her pain. Speaking to my wife, in any thing less than uplifting, is just wrong! We need to ask ourselves are we trying to make it better or worse. Although she loves me no matter what, I need to make sure that my words are spoken in such a way as to bring grace to the situation and not tear things apart! Let's try to engage our brain before our words are spoken because they can do a lot of damage. Chose wisely my friends for our words and how they are spoken, have consequences! peace, tom
