Gracious Speech

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Ultimately the problem with a loose tongue is that it is disconnected from the mind. Winsome talk demands some wise thoughts. James asks in his letter:" Who is wise and understanding among you?" Gracious speech will come from one who is filled with "the humility that comes from wisdom>" James 3:13 The jealous , selfish, arrogant person will lie. These forces are destructive in every way(vs 14-16) In contrast " the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, than peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial, and sincere." (vs 17) "Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness."(vs 18) So to control our talk we need to cultivate our minds. Ask for wisdom from God. Make both your life and your lips a blessing to everyone.
