Seeds of Truth – Ephesians 4:29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,
that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4:29, NIV

Have you ever struggled with using unwholesome talk? Have you struggled with taking the Lord’s name in vain or swearing? Have you struggled with gossip or complaining? How did God lead you through these struggles? How do you make sure that you speak encouraging words to others? How do you use your words to build them up instead of tear them down? How do you control your tongue?
