'SPEAK EVIL OF NO MAN': People in my community.

"To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness to all men" - Titus 3:2
.
By the words of a man's mouth, he's either justified or condemned. Much attention must be paid to how we speak, when we speak and to whom we speak.
.
Many people in life had spoken ill words that has placed their lives in bondage, either consciously or unconsciously. It is better to say nothing when you don't have something meaningful or edifying to say than to say things that will adversely affect your life or the other person.
.
The difference beware the criminals that were crucified with Jesus was that one spoke evil about Him and the other spoke well about Him (Luke 23:37-40).
.
Before you speak, think: is it meaningful, is it edifying? One of the marks of a perfect man is that he does not offend in his word (James 3:2).
.
Many had spoken words that has placed their lives in irrevocable bondage. Some has spoken ill about their situation or spouse due to their present feelings and it has affected a lot.
.
Before you say something about a person, do you know the truth about the matter? How true is the truth you know? It's better to seal one's lips than to say careless words that you'd be judged for (Matt. 12:36).
.
The likes of gossip, rumor mongering, bearing false witness, flattering, saying negative words or unkind words are evil. It's naturally difficult to tame a man's lip but it's possible through the help of the Holy Spirit.
.
Examine your words before you utter them, are they good or evil? Ask God to set a watch on your lip lest you speak evil about your neighbor.
