We are to use our words to heal and to encourage.


p10058Using words as weapons is not the Christian thing to do, instead we are to use our words to heal and to encourage. Using foul language not only is offensive to others it also degrades ones character and gives a pretty negative  image of yourself for others to see. If you wag your tongue with ought any Discretion or thought to what damage may be done, then you will have to reap the seeds you have sown. Better to follow the bibles guideline and let everything you say be good and helpful. The words you say are the reflection of what is in your heart and on your mind.  Think before you speak and avoid letting out those words of anger.

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

    Absolutely, well said, I am known for not swearing or using bad language, and i think it is right, there is no need to use bad language. My pastor once told us teenagers, long time ago, every time we want to say “Oh god ” or something similar, we should say “Spinach” and then we were aware how often we use it. It was then an eyeopener. There is a nice passage “taming the tongue” in James chapter 3, verse 5,6 mainly.
