We are meditating on the types of speech that the Bible warns against. Believers should not speak.
They speak vanity every one with his neighbor.. (Psalms 12:2)
...with their mouth they speak proudly. (Psalms 17:10)
And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. (Colossians 2:4)
(Enticing words sound wise and plausible, but are not.)
How long shall they utter and speak hard things? And all the workers of iniquity boast themselves. (Psalms 94:4)
Words which take God's name in vain:
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. (Exodus 20:7)
Cursing and bitter words:
Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness. (Romans 3:14) :
Let the lying lips be put to silence, which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. (Psalms 31:18)
Malicious words against others:
Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deed which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words...(3 John 10)
As you talk today, analyze what you are saying. Are you guilty of any of these violations?
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.
