The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked make themselves a stench and bring shame on themselves. ~Proverbs 13:5
Speak truth - speak life.
Practice restraint and refuse to give an audience to anyone tearing people down. You have the hope of Christ in your voice! Use it.
Your words can bring peace, calm, assurance, and affirmation when situations become tense. Take care to choose your words wisely, as they are the true reflection of the soul.
GO DEEPER: Luke 6: 43-45
