DAILY VERSE

Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.

Ephesians 4:29

 

DEVOTION

The word sarcasm is derived from the Greek verb sarkazein. It literally means “to tear flesh like a dog.” When we speak to others let our words exhort and not tear down. The world, especially the entertainment industry and political realm, seem to have forgotten that words matter. We need to honor God with the words we speak, it will set us apart and encourage others.
