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.

—Ephesians 4:29

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We can use our words to be cute. We can use our words to appear impressive. We can use our words to win arguments. We can use our words to defend ourselves. We can use our words to lie and distort. We can use our words to do many things, but God wants us to use our words to bless. So when we speak, if our words do not bless and benefit those to whom we direct them, then we should not say anything. Grandma was right. “If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all.”

My Prayer…

Give me wisdom today, dear God, to speak words that bless my family, co-workers, and those I meet. I want to be truthful, loving, kind, and merciful when I open my mouth and speak. May the words of my mouth be used in your service and to your glory today, dear Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
