Put away from you a deceitful mouth and put devious speech far from you (Proverbs 4:24).
Godly character is evidenced by your speech. In Colossians chapter three, we are instructed to put off all bad speech and put on kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. These are evidenced in godly speech. Let us repent of our bad talk and trust God to use our speech to bless and encourage others to the praise of God.
