Don’t Just Say It

Just say it.

Just say it.

Just say it.

Those three words [playing on repeat in your mind] can cause a lot of trouble.

The thing is, you are the only one with the power to control what comes out of your mouth.

Stop and ask yourself are the words that are about to spew from my mouth noble? Are they true? Are they pure? Are they admirable? And if those words are right how can I speak the truth that they hold in love?

Y’all, it’s hard. Trust me – I know. But self-control is a fruit of God’s Spirit. I want to grow with God, not go – go with the world that is.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
