A (Challenging) Word to Live By

"Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." Ephesians 4:29

I would suggest that a good definition of a "corrupting word" is much, much broader than we could imagine.

I think you are correct. Speech is such a difficult thing to control. We really need to submit all our speech to the control of the Holy Spirit. Only then do we have any hope of honoring God through it.
