Profanity is the weak immature mind attempting to express itself.
Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. James 3:10
It is a sad day when one cannot even carry on a conversation with a grown adult without every other word coming out of their mouth being profane and vile. Yet, this is where we are at in America. Go to the checkout counter at the local grocery store and have a problem with the receipt. Visit your favorite restaurant and get the wrong order. Share your beliefs on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram and you will get an ear full of wicked words from foul mouths! Even worse is when it is from so called “Christians”.
Child of God, how is your testimony when it comes to the language you use? It doesn’t have to be vile and wicked. It could be just lazy lips gossiping about co-workers, fellow church members, or family. Zip those lips and save what you have to say to the Lord in prayer! Take your mom's advice, if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all!
