Ephesians 4 : 29 New International Version

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Listening in a meeting

it was all to clear

something sinister going on

difficult to hear

Language of a different type

things to steal

why hide things

is this real

Resolving to leave

in light of unwholesome talk

taking a stand

time to walk

There is finally communication

explaining why I am leaving

language is explained

so there can be healing

We are divided

mostly from misunderstanding

language is powerful

causing a disbanding

Taking the time

to communicate in a kind way

will bind us all

leading to peace one day


Thank you for the gift of language. May we use it to live in peace and give You glory.
