Sound Speech

Key Verse

“Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.” Titus 2:8

Text — Titus 2:6-8


Speech is a very important aspect of human existence and development. Parents are usually excited to hear their babies say their first words. Speech is one of the significant characteristics that differentiates humans from animals. During the life span of an individual, we learn with the help of speech to adapt to our environment. The things a person says can destroy or build him up. Marguerite Ellen Schumann, a writer wrote thus “Words can poison, words can heal. Words start and fight wars, but words make peace. Words lead people to the pinnacles of good and words can plunge people to the depth of evil.” Words can truly be very powerful and have huge impact on our lives.

Believers are to speak sound and healthy words that will benefit the hearers. Our words speak a lot about who we are. People can judge the state of your heart from the words that come out of your mouth. We should avoid speaking angry, foolish, blasphemous, filthy and corrupt words. Friends of Jesus should always speak the truth at all times and not exaggerate. Avoid speaking evil about people and the things of God. Always think before you say anything.
