Scripture Passage: Ephesians 4:29

What our mouths say is very important. Words that we write can be kept for a very long time, or they can be erased or destroyed. But the words that we speak can never be unspoken. We need to think of the effect of our words on the person to whom we speak. When we say, "You are stupid" or "You are bad", our words are hurtful to that person. We should say, instead, an encouraging word: "It would be wiser to do it this way" or, "What you have done is not good. It would be better to do it the right way." God is listening to our words and will judge us by them.

1. How can we take back the words we have spoken?
We cannot do it.
2. How do our words affect people?
They can be hurtful or helpful.
3. Who is the final judge of what we say?
God is the judge.

Memory verse: Matthew 12:37
The words you say now reflect your fate then; either you will be justified by them or you will be condemned. (NLT)
