Every Word Counts




Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)

Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.


Hebrews 11:3 (ESV)

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.


  • You cannot see words – but they have tremendous creative power!


Proverbs 12:6 (NLT)

The words of the wicked are like a murderous ambush, but the words of the godly save lives.


Proverbs 18:21 (GNT)

What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.


Matthew 12:36-37 (NLT)

And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”


Colossians 4:6 (ESV)

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.


Colossians 4:6 The Message (MSG)

Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.


What are you doing with your words?

Are you using unprofitable words that bring destruction?

Are your words costing yourself & others?
