“I like your outfit”

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up”

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)

When we think about giving, we usually think about material gifts, money, even a helping hand. All of these bless the recipient, as well as, opens the door for God to abundantly bless the giver.

Yet one of the most powerful vehicles of giving is our words. Many have weeks of drought without hearing a compliment or praise.

We need to listen to our own words. Are there complaints, gossip, cuts, crude language or cussing. Or words that ‘build others up’ ?


Heavenly Father, I want my words to “end the drought” in those around me. Continue to clean my mouth as I use it to ‘build others’. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
