Eye On Integrity-Edifying Words

May 11th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on 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.”

In the transfer of materials, filters are meant to screen out impurities and let liquid pass through. Similarly, in the transfer of our thoughts into words, it is helpful to use the right filter. This is the filter that will help us screen out the bad words and let the good words pour into people’s lives in an edifying way.

Ephesians 4:15 tells us to speak the truth in love. That’s the filter. It applies to the words we speak, and also the words we communicate in social media.

Talking with edifying words is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
