CHALLENGE FOR TODAY!
Watch your mouth!!!
No matter what folks might say about your or what they might do to you, don’t react, but rather respond in the spirit. “Let no corrupt communication proceed 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. Don’t let the enemy trick you into shooting off at the mouth! No cursing today! No fussing today! No backbiting today! No lying today! No gossiping today! No evil plotting and schemes today! Do not use your mouth to retaliate in your flesh against those who offend you today! This might seem difficult, but remember that you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you! Respond by taking it to God, He will fix it for you!
I repeat! “Let no corrupt communication proceed 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. It will amaze you to see how God will handle the situation!
PLEASE meditate on the scriptures below to help you control the way you communicate with others under any circumstance.
