Talk is Not Cheap

“For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush. The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:43-45.

Our words are an important component of our lives. James writes, “For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body.” (James 3:2). And the Proverbs 10:21 says, “The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of sense.” And, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.” (Proverbs 25:11).

As ambassadors of Christ, let us make sure that the words of our mouths are worth consuming. And that goes for our keyboards, too.
