It is so wonderful to have our Lord 's Bible that we can read, understand and apply His words to our lives. Our words must reflect the will of God and work to build up His kingdom. It is so great to know that even our words used according to His will can administer grace to the hearer.

Corrupt communication is anything that does not edify. Edify : exhort :with all longsuffering : Speak the truth in love : in the word of God. I believe that this scripture is a every day accurance and to be bathed in prayer for myself to do. The tongue can no man tame but with help of Holy Spirit I can. I praise God that He does not leave me alone to do what He says to do. I cannot do it by myself.

This verse shows how important it is to watch what we say. People say so many vulgar and filthy things today and they completely disregard this scripture. This shows that God judges us not only for what we do but also for what we say.

To be very honest, I struggled with this particular chapter at first. Only because I'm always a person who wants to negotiate. I didn't like the first part of this chapter, but the second part I could do...lol; it was just a process. By the grace of GOD I'll get it together.
