One thing that I truly dislike that ladies do with each other/to each other is when they call each other derogatory, demeaning, nasty names. Now granted I don’t believe in using profane, degrading words with ANYBODY, but for right now, I’ll just say this girl to girl…sister to sister. While I do not feel I need to give any examples for what I mean as we were all born but we weren’t born yesterday; I’m sure you have heard a thing or two in your lifetime about the things women say to each other. It’s not pretty…it’s not cool, it’s quite distasteful if you ask me. Why we do it does not matter and who we do it to does not matter. I don’t think it’s okay to use with your mother, your best friend, your enemies or whoever else you may “think” its suitable to use with. Why ? To me, just listening to such words come out of someone’s mouth is just unpleasant. To God, he does not approve of it at all. The bible says in Ephesians 4:29: “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.”
The bible says “let
no corrupting talk” come out of your mouth. Whether it’s a way you “express yourself” or whatever reason, it’s not good language to use period. Also, building up people is not about just telling people positive things but its also about telling people things in a constructive, respectful manner. Furthermore, the bible says in James 3:10: “From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.” You probably have seen it, heard it yourself where people are praising God/speaking kind words to people then turning about and cursing somebody out in the most vulgar or inappropriate language! There can not be a two way street, you either speak one way or another. After all, it is what comes out is what defiles a person (Matthew 15:10-11).
We can all go around saying whatever we want but that does not mean there are not consequences for what we say. Though there may not be any consequences that we can see in front of us/ahead of us but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any. Even besides ourselves, we should have enough respect for other people that we will not use it with anybody. If its not fit for you to call your mother these things, it’s not fit for anybody. Let us use words that will build up each other in constructive truth and sincerity. It’s good for us, good for those who hear you speak and good for the one who is listening to you.
