Ephesians 4.29 – March 9, 2020

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. (Ephesians 4:29, NIV)

There is always a tension in this verse between what really qualifies as unwholesome if we are willing to compare it to the things that we say that help build people up.

Thought Questions:

What sort of things do you think Paul might be meaning here when he talks about “unwholesome” talk? How broad of a perspective do you think he means?

What sort of talk builds you up? How often do you talk this way to others?

What can you do to help others through the words you say to them?
