What do we talk about?

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:14

What do we talk about?
Unfortunately, our conversations often consist simply of chatter. We exchange superficialities, talk about the weather or discuss the latest news. Sometimes we also vent about our fellow human beings. We badmouth them in front of others with harsh or sarcastic words.

God warns us in the Bible against useless or harmful talk: “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification” (Ephesians 4:29). In the book of Proverbs, He mentions several times the danger of talking too much. He also shows the advantage of being silent.

“In the multitude of words sin is not lacking; but he who restrains his lips is wise” (Proverbs 10:19).
“He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit” (Proverbs 17:27).
“Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from trouble” (Proverbs 21:23).
Often, on the other hand, we find it difficult to speak of the Lord Jesus or to encourage others with a word from the Bible. The book of Proverbs encourages us to say something good and uplifting at the right time.

“A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is” (Proverbs 15:23).
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver” (Proverbs 25:11).

Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 13:1-39 · 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28

for Tuesday, December 3, 2013
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

OFFENDED IN CHRIST?

The Christian race must be run with lots of patience or else it will be bungled midway. If you are inpatient with Gods timing, you will not only get into trouble but may not be able to finish the race. A good number of backsliders derailed from their heavenly track because of impatience. In Matthew 11:6 Jesus...More

Jehovah appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre. And he sat at the tent-door in the heat of the day. And he lifted up his eyes and saw, and behold, three men standing near him.

The spiritual elevation of Abraham in Genesis 18 and 19 is something very peculiar. He seems...More
THE HOLY SPIRIT
Open Heavens
for Thursday, December 19, 2013
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

THE HOLY SPIRIT

It is one thing to receive the anointing and another to keep growing on it. There are people who had the anointing, but today, everything has virtually ebbed out. It is possible to connect with the Holy Spirit and to continue to flow in the power of the anointing even at increasing levels. If this is your desire,...More
BEFORE YOU GET ANGRY
Open Heavens
for Friday, February 28, 2014
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

BEFORE YOU GET ANGRY

Yesterday we learnt it is not right for us to get angry with God or to take offence against Him, even if we experience the deferment of our hopes. The example of John the Baptist who earlier acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah, but later doubted Him because of his painful experience of incarceration is a warning...More
