Ephesians 5:4–Nor should there be any obscenity, foolish talk, or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
What do we use our words for? What words get spoken and what focus do we have for our words? As a believer in Christ, obscenities, foolish talk and coarse joking are all listed as things which are out of place for our lives. When we are saying these things, we are simultaneously being unthankful. We cannot be displaying gratitude while a string of curse words come out of our mouths. Do our words demonstrate the gratitude we have in Christ Jesus?
Father, I praise You and lift You up. Keep words of thanksgiving on my tongue today and not any other foolish words. I will use my words to reflect You today.
