Be free from using perverse words, no matter what!
“Avoid dishonest speech and pretentious words. Be free from using perverse words, no matter what!” Proverbs 4:24(TPT)
No matter the provocation do not use perverse words.
Say only things that will edify and build up your hearers.
“Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth; avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip. Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions. Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you. Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust.” Proverbs 4:4(MSG)
No Careless banter
No white lies
Use your mouth to praise God at all times.
“ My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless (affectionately and gratefully praise) His holy name forever and ever.”
Remember again that your words are to give life and healings.
“Nothing is more appealing than speaking beautiful, life-giving words.
For they release sweetness to our souls and inner healing to our spirits.”
“What this adds up to, then, is this: no more lies, no more pretense. Tell your neighbor the truth. In Christ’s body, we’re all connected to each other, after all. When you lie to others, you end up lying to yourself.” Ephesians 4:25(MSG)
When you tell lies, you are living in self-deception.
Watch what proceeds from your mouth.
