Words Can Hurt or Heal

Ephesians 5:4 (American Standard Version)

“…nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, or jesting, which are not befitting: but rather giving of thanks.”

God gave me this verse after joking with my wife yesterday and this morning.  God teaches us in so many ways through our marriage partner.  My wife and I always refer to each other as “Bess” friends, but that doesn’t mean that I should joke with her in a coarse manner or say something that could be taken the wrong way.  We should be slow to speak and quick to listen (James 1:19).  Our words should be chosen carefully because remember, “The tongue has the power of life and death…” (Proverbs 18:12).  

So, even if we are saying something in a joking way, God is telling us that it still has the power to do damage.  All the Devil needs is a foot hold (Eph 4:27) and he can do major damage.  May God be with us and may His protection forever surround us.  In Jesus’ name~ Amen.

I love you Maserame.  MmmmmmBBBbbbbaaaaaaaaaa!!
