Communication

Do you apply Biblical principles in your communication with others? Here are a few scriptures to apply: "Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;" (James 1:19). "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear" (Ephesians 4:29). "There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing" (Proverbs 12:18). "Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person" (Colossians 4:6).
