It Is Important to Watch What You Say (Part III)

The Bible has a lot to say about watching the way you talk.

Our mouths should be offering to understand and voicing words of wisdom. Is this a part of our life, or are we letting our mouths say things, which are foolish and that do not provide understanding? We have to line ourselves up with God’s Word if we want to be a blessing to people who are around us and we come into contact with. 

David wrote this by revelation and was talking about the mouths of those around him. He was being symbolic, but the words coming out of their mouths were like swords, spears, and arrows. Let’s pray our mouths never have words like that. It is imperative we watch what we say. Here are some verses on what should be coming out of our mouths.

Psalm 71:8 
The words coming from my lips are full of Your praise, talking about your greatness every day.

Our mouths must be filled with God’s praise, affirming His splendor all day long. These are God’s words. Below is a verse from Proverbs. This is a verse you should always remember.

Proverbs 4:24 
Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.

This is something we must do. You shouldn’t have to research the meaning of “corrupt talk” or “perversity.” We have to eliminate them from our conversation, especially in public as we represent the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. People know us by not our actions, but our words.  

We are living epistles [2 Cor. 3:2 KJV]. People observe our lives and want what we have. If our living is bad, they will not. People should desire what we want, how we are living. Though it’s only of we are living God’s Word. These verses we should have stored in our hearts.
