Ephesians 4:29 KJV 1900
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Kunai kuwachan timiharuko mukh-baaTa na-niskos, tara aabashyak unnatikaa nimti jun kuraa asal chha, tyahi maatra niskos, ra tyasle sunneharulaai anugraha pradaan garos.
The Bible says much about our speech:
Our words, our speech is very important to God
James chapter 3 talks about the tongue:
James 3:5 KJV 1900
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
Like a fire!
Can be used for good or bad!
To give comfort and warmth
Or to destroy and hurt
The right speech does not happen on accident
On it’s own
We have to be careful:
Psalm 141:3 KJV 1900
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.
We see often throughout the Bible
That we should be careful in our speech!
Psalm 141:3 KJV 1900
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.
It is better not to speak than to say wrong things
It is better not to speak than to say wrong things
Our speech is our responsibility
**Like a fire, we need to use if carefully
If we are not careful, we will hurt and destroy
Matthew 15:11 KJV 1900
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
If used properly, it can be a big blessing@
In , Paul teaches about our speech:
Today I want to ask you 2 questions:
Today I want to ask you 2 questions:

Does your speech edify?(unnati garnu)

We all know some people, whose(jasko) words do not edify
Everything the Pharisees said was to to hurt, to deceive(chhalnu)
Everything the pharisees said was to trick, to hurt, to deceive
We ought to do the opposite
Our speech out to build people
Lift people up
Help people
Men should see Christ in our words!
Gossip(ganathan)
Complaining(gan-gan)
Dirty jokes(ashuddha bholeka kuraaharu)
Lies
Insults(gaali garnu)
Arguing(biwaad)
Matthew 15:1 KJV 1900
Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
Matthew 15:11 KJV 1900
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
The Pharisees were worried about their food
Is it clean?
Will it give disease? Illness?
Is this food sinful?
But Jesus said that their words made them unclean!
Their speech
Do your words edify?
Give encouragement(protsaha’) or discouragement(nirotsahit)?
Do they build or destroy?
Lift up or put down(rakhnu)?
Watch that fire carefully!
Use the fire rightly!

Does your speech give grace?

Unmerited favor
(ayogyata sanga dieko pakshaamaa/kripaa)
When Eli was angry, Hannah asked for grace:
1 Samuel 1:18 KJV 1900
And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.
We all want grace, but do we give grace?
We all want grace, but do we give grace?
We think others should be kind to us, but are we?
But are we?
With every word that we speak, we have a choice
To give grace or do not give grace
Never forget the grace that we have been given:
Not just saving grace, but grace for living
Why do we take time for praising the Lord
Because we do not want to forget God’s grace!
Have you received grace from God?
I have! We all have!
David wrote this:
Psalm 45:2 KJV 1900
Thou art fairer than the children of men: Grace is poured into thy lips: Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
“Tapaaiko oth-harumaa anugraha khanyaaieko chha...”
**Example of stagnant, bitter water
Not exit
Reservoir(jalaashaya, talaau) vs. channel(shrot, mul, nahar)
**Receive from God - Give to others
Did you deserve God’s grace? No.
“ayogyata sanga dieko kripaa”
It is easy to give grace to friends
To kind people
Colossians 4:6 KJV 1900
Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Psalm 141:3 KJV 1900
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.
“every man” - “hareklaai”
Does your speech give grace?
When people speak roughly to you, is your speech kind?
Matthew 12:34–37 KJV 1900
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
When people hurt you, is your speech kind?
Let’s edify with our speech
Let’s give grace with our speech
