Just A Note From My Journal

Florence Littauer states, "Our words should be like a little silver box with a bow on top. We need to speak words of encouragement." Ephesians 4:29 reads, "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 that hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with malice. Be kind one to another; tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you."

Corrupt talk is like a bee sting; you will feel the pain, but after awhile it will not be as intense. When you are the subject of someone's hurtful remarks, please do not be discouraged and most importantly apply the salve of love and forgiveness and give it over to God!
