Wholesome Words

Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,
But what is good for necessary edification, that it
may impart grace to the hearers.
{Ephesians 4:29}

Have you ever said something and later felt regret?
Sometimes we can speak without thinking, and our
words can make others feel bad. Unwholesome speech
was a problem even in the apostle Paul's day. He reminded
the Christians at Ephesus that they should put away vulgarity,
lewdness, slander, and obscene talk from their lives
{Eph 5:4, Col 3:8}.

These were expressions of their old lives {1 Cor. 6:9-11},
and it was now out of place with their new identity in Christ.
Instead, their lives were to be characterized by wholesome
speech. Their good or wholesome words would give grace
to the hearers {Eph. 4:29}. The Holy Spirit would help guard
their speech, convict of any filthy talk, and help them to use
words to benefit others {John 16:7-13}.

We are called to reflect God with all we are, and that
includes our words. May our mouths be filled with thanks-
giving and words that benefit others.

Wholesome words flow out of a life made new.

In His Love!
