Chatter isn’t going anywhere whether it be in the political realm, social, educational, entertainment, civil arena or judicial. It’s just what us humans do with our tongues. Chatter is bound to go in one direction or another. In the eyes of God one is good and the other not so good. How is that determined? Well since God is all knowing and all seeing He never has to give His judgment a second thought.
Worthy conversations can’t be determined by motivation alone because it can be based upon man’s philosophy or desires which do not align with God’s will.
A conversation can be driven with selfish intent and manipulation to bring about diabolical plans. We have seen this played out in the political arena.
Our tongues are going to demonstrate who we worship and give honor to; if the bases for having conversations is not founded in God’s approval than it is not a worthy conversation.
These conversations can become like off road competitions where speed limit signs are non-existent and stop signs are never heard of. We never want to find ourselves in the midst of conversations that have spiraled out of control.
Jesus said our conversations must be seasoned with salt for the hearers. How do we do that? By being filled with God’s Holy Spirit so what is flowing from our mouth is God inspired and not flesh propagating itself into worthless piles of garbage.
Colossians 4:6 (KJV)
6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Our tongues were not created for evil but for good to glorify our Father in heaven. These are worthy conversations that will enjoy crowns to come and rewards that can never rot or spoil.
If we can’t have Jesus join in our conversation then it is not a worthy conversation.
Psalm 101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
Proverbs 10:18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
Romans 1:28-32 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
