4 Tips to not crush others with negative words

But what if others don’t know you’re a Christ follower because of your negative words?


Thoughts on Negative Words

Wow…how are we supposed to only let encouraging words come out of our mouth?

  1. Control your tongue — How? abundance of heart the mouth speaks Proverbs 4:23
  2. THINK before you speak (or post)-
    True? Ephesians 4:15
    Helpful? Colossians 4:6
    Intelligent? James 3:13
    Necessary? James 1:26
    Kind? Titus 3:2
  3. Know what Gossip is and how to stop it. — You know something is gossip when you’re not part of the problem or part of the solution and you’re talking about it with someone who is not part of the solution or part of the problem.
  4. Be Led by Holy Spirit Gal. 5:25


“Holy Spirit, remind us every time we don’t speak words that build up someone else. Make us quick to repent and make amends. Soften our excuses and let everything we say be good and helpful, so that our words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”
