For the next few days, we will meditate on the types of speech that the Bible warns against. We are to refrain from speaking...
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (Matthew 12:36)
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge; but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. (Proverbs 15:14)
Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. (2 Timothy 2:14)
-Fables and commandments of men:
Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. (Titus 1:14)
-Evil about things you do not know:
But these speak evil of those things which they know not... (Jude 10)
But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption. (2 Peter 2:12)
For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of covetousness; God is witness. (1 Thessalonians 2:5)
Pray about these as you conclude your quiet time today.
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
