You probably have done this: thrown a stone into the water and observed the ripples; they flitter on and on. Sweet mom, I know you’ve noticed, the current of your life affects everyone around you. As a mom of five, I came to the realization very early on, that my words would never be forgotten; consequently, I’d better keep a tight rein on my tongue! Keep a diligent watch on your “outflow,” God will help you keep your words good.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up. (Ephesians 4:29, NIV)
