Ephesians 4:29 - Today’s devotional
Phil Ware’s devotional (from
www.crosswalk.com ) reminds us that our words should reflect a
Christ-like heart, full of encouragement, love and compassion. As
Christian vegetarians we should keep this in mind when spreading the
message of good stewardship of all of God’s Creation.
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.”
Thoughts on today's verse: The goal in Christian communication
is not merely clarity, but encouragement based on what the needs of the
other person are.
Prayer: Tender Shepherd, give me a heart that is pure so that
my words may be pure. Give me a heart that is kind so that my words may
be kind. Give me a heart that is full of joy and encouragement so that I
may share these with those you bring to my path and with whom I share
conversation. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
