October 28, 2009, "High side of conversation"

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth; but that which is good to the use of edifying that it may bring grace unto the hearers."
~ Ephesians 4:29 ~


I saw this today, "Stay on the high side of every conversation: honor the absent." it was a quote by Lisa Bevere.

Truly a reminder today from the Lord; no matter what people struggle with, what they are going through or how we feel negatively when we are around them, this is a great reminder of Ephesians 4:29, "Let no corrupt communication come out of your mouth but that which is good to the use of edifying; that it may bring grace unto the hearers."

I love how simple yet powerfully the statement effected me. "Stay on the high side of every conversation: honor the absent." As we honor the 'absent', we honor God as well.

O Lord, help me to stay on the high side of every conversation; honoring those have wrongfully accused me, or that I have issues with. Thank You Lord for helping me to honor You and them, I can only rely on Your strength, as my own abilities in this area is almost zero. Thank You Father that I can do all things through Christ as He strengthens me. I can by Your grace be raised up to sow good seed in every conversation. I love you Lord, Love your daughter and princess,
Teresa

  1. Amen! I love that quote. It does go so well w/that verse. As a talker, sometimes I have difficulty with this truth. But thankgoodness God doesn't give up on us. He has gently been working on me through the years. I am learning to hold my tongue more and more.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog today. It was nice to "meet" you. I pray you have had a great Wednesday!
