Ephesians 4:29-32

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

29 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. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

This verse has a lot of meaning for me lately. I ask God for forgiveness, as I have not been keeping "unwholesome" talk out of my mouth. Sometimes I get carried away with the gossip at work and I am sorry for that. I don't know why I listen to it and then, make my own comments, which I know is a sin, but for some reason I end up doing it anyways.

    I know what you mean about getting caught up in gossip. I have the same struggle.

In our society, we're surrounded by the negative, snarky, and unwholesome. As followers of Christ, we have access to His power, to swim against the tide and focus on and to speak the positive. It isn't easy. But in Him, we can do it.

Pray for me! I'll be praying for you!
