“这有什么大不了的！” 这是信徒为自己出言不逊、口无遮拦、出口伤人所作的辩护。可是，很久以前，有位朋友就跟我坦承：“我们办公室里的道德滑坡开始初露端倪，就是因为我们不注意口德。尽管起初看似无伤大雅，后果却很惨重。” 没有落实到日常言语上的信仰是空洞的。所以，让我们开口去祝福并造就人，不咒诅，不诽谤，不说闲言碎语。
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
"It's no big deal!" That's the whine of a believer rationalizing vulgar, inappropriate, or hurtful speech. However, a friend confessed to me a long time ago, "Our moral plunge in the office began when we let our language slip. It didn't seem like that big a deal at the time, but what it led to was disastrous." Religion that is not reflected in everyday speech is empty and hollow. So let's use our speech to bless and encourage, not to curse, slander, or gossip.
Holy and incomparable God, please forgive me for not using my speech redemptively. Forgive me for the times I've used my words to wound another or in ways that dishonor you and your holy claim on my life. Use my words today to bless, encourage, and comfort so others may know your grace through me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
