Dysfunctional Speech

GmEkklesia


Dysfunctional Speech, is an ailment that often goes undiagnosed.


What we say and how we speak to others is not only detrimental to them but also to us.


One of the many blessings of being a Christian is having the Holy Spirit as our Comforter and Friend, and it is often from time to time the words we speak to ourselves and the words we speak to others do not reflect the evidence the Holy Spirit is with us. I ask, are you speaking a blessing or a burden into yours and others lives?


The words that we want to speak over worry and conflict are life-giving. The words we want to speak over our relationships are life-giving and optimistic. The words we want to speak over our work and family are blessings and not burdens.

The words we speak behind the backs of those we say we love must be life-giving, if they aren't then something is dysfunctional.


If we want to speak those types of words that brings life-giving blessings then we have to deal with the dysfunction in our hearts.. it is from our hearts, the truth of what we really feel originates. This is the source of that speech.


With God's help, today let's make the decision to no longer speak dysfunctionally. Let's make the decision to be a blessing and not a burden. We can begin to make the right steps with the words we speak. If the words we speak matter, then what our words reveal matters just as much. No matter what we said in the past, no matter what we sounded like yesterday, today is a new day that we can decide to be different from this point forward. Let's begin to heal the dysfunction both internally and externally.

People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right! Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water? Does a fig tree produce olives, or a grapevine produce figs? No, and you can’t draw fresh water from a salty spring.

James 3:7‭-‬12 NLT
