Do you know how much of an impact your words have on those around you? The desire for acceptance and approval is one of the most basic and greatest human needs. Do your words build up or tear down those around you? If we are filled with God’s Holy spirit, He will guide our words. 1 Thessalonians is a great example of an entire letter devoted to the encouragement of God’s people. Faithful are the wounds of a friend. Use your words wisely. Mr. Alverio speaks on the aspects of speech we must incorporate into our lives, those we must refrain from using, and exhorts us to be careful with our words.
