“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”
Hopefully more than one person in your life has encouraged you and said something that built you up. Sadly, on the contrary, you’ve probably been discouraged once or twice as well. If this is true, then you know the influence that the words of others can have on your confidence and character. God tells us in His word to let nothing corrupting come from our mouths, but instead to be an encouragement to the people around us. Discouragement erodes relationships and brings others down, but by building others up, you give grace to those who hear you.
