Good Communication

Even though I am hard-of-hearing, I use my voice to communicate with people. So it is very important that I take care of my mouth. I brush my teeth and floss every day, and I have my teeth cleaned by the dentist.
We can use our mouths to communicate good things like encouraging someone, singing praises to God or praying. But sometimes we can use our mouths to communicate in a bad way. We can gossip, tell lies or say hurtful things to other people.
Verse 3 of our Bible Reading says, “Lord, help me control what I say. Don’t let me say anything bad.” Whether you use your voice to speak or you use your hands to sign, you need to make sure that your communication pleases God. We need God to help us control our communication.
Think about your communication today. Is God pleased with your words and your signs?
