Just Jesting

Ephesians 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

This verse sure hit me hard. So often we are just teasing, just jesting or joking but are wrong to do so. No filthiness or obscenities should come out of our mouths. We shouldn’t be talking foolishness either. That would mean we are not to speak like we do not understand what truth is. We don’t mess around with things that might be a mockery of God. No risqué talking is right either. We should be giving thanks rather than wasting our speech on matters of no actual value.

That doesn’t mean you cant have a good time, but it does say that maybe we should be just a little more careful how we talk. What comes out of our mouth reveals what is in our heart!
