WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT:
Talk
+ WORDS SHOW THE REAL YOU
+ GOOD TALK, BAD TALK
“A good person produces good things from the
treasury of a good heart, and an evil person
produces evil things from the treasury of an
evil heart. What you say flows from what is
in your heart.” LUKE 6:45
Let your conversation
be gracious and attractive
so that you will have
the right response for
everyone.
+++
If you claim to be religious but don’t control
your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your
religion is worthless. JAMES 1:26
+ THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK
Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You
must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow
to get angry. JAMES 1:19
+++
Watch your tongue and
keep your mouth shut,
and you will stay out
of trouble.
PROVERBS 21:23

[Jesus:] “You must give an account on judgment
day for every idle word you speak. The words you
say will either acquit you or condemn you.”

So stop telling
lies. Let us tell our
neighbors the truth,
for we are all parts
of the same body.
EPHESIANS 4:25

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.

Wise words are more
valuable
than much gold and
many rubies.
PROVERBS 20:15

Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent;
with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent.
A gossip goes around
telling secrets,
but those who are
trustworthy can
keep a confidence.
