“For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
I Peter 1:15-16
“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
Not only should we do all things without murmurings or disputings, but we should also be aware of our manner of conversation.
The Word has much to say about the words we speak.
I Timothy 4:12
“…be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.”
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”
We’ve all heard the saying… “If you don’t have any thing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” How much trouble could we avoid if we would just keep our thoughts and opinions to ourselves sometimes? My pastor advises people all the time to “Believe every thing you say, but don’t say every thing you believe.”
