"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."
Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)
The purpose of these devotionals this week is to build community and unity in your everyday places. We spend a lot of time joking with our friends and sometimes we take the jokes too far and end up tearing someone down instead of building them up. The bible says to let every word you say be good or helpful. Wow! If we could just live by that, how much better would our relationships be? Every word from our mouths would be encouraging to those that hear them. God makes it clear to speak encouragement and not negativity. It can be much easier said than done. Welcome God into every part of your life and let Him build up community all around you. Pray today that every word that comes from your mouth would be encouraging to all who will hear them.
