In all that we do, in every area and aspect of our lives, we have the ability to mold the world around us by the things we speak. The word says we have the ability to speak life and the ability to speak death, it is unfortunate that those who speak death often times shout, when those who speak life often times whisper. So if the world around you is doom and gloom take an inventory, if you are not speaking life then try that, if you are thanks, but try to shout life. Just think about this, if you had to ware the words you speak as clothing would you even want to leave the house?
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
And there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
