Before the Lord – Day 7

Let no corrupt communications out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29

Today I will have the opportunity to meet and fellowship with other believers. Experience has taught me the power of a conversation and the bible has plainly spoken to the same. I have had a whole day ruined by a mouth full of words and I’m certain to have ruined the day for many others by my words. However, the scripture has taught that it is not just a loose lip that should concern me. The words of my mouth are product of my heart. Either a volcano of destructive lava and ash spew from my lips, or stream of sweet refreshment. But, it can’t be both.

My prayer today:

Oh Father, search out my words and the thought in which they are birthed. Let me minister grace instead of grudge, hope instead of hurt, care instead of criticism. “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight”.
