For those of you not on Facebook, and also for those that are of course, we are also now adding some of Sharon's Facebook posts. These will be updated regularly so please keep visiting.

I wonder how you feel about the prospect of having to wear a mask or face covering when to go to the shops. I heard a journalist on Talk Radio complaining that the country was ‘being muzzled’ by this new rule. In defence of the ruling, the Talk Radio presenter suggested that it is necessary if ‘what is coming out of our mouths is dangerous’. 

If we are asymptomatic COVID carriers then what is coming out of our mouth may well be a physical danger to others. But there are other dangers with what comes out of our mouths. Lies, slander, gossip are all dangerous, at best they are unhelpful, at worst they ruin lives. If we intend our words to deceive, hurt, manipulate, or con, when we exaggerate and speculate, then we damage other people, and we damage ourselves.

Even when we don’t intend it, we can offend and hurt other people by our careless use of language.

So, watch what you say, and take care to speak only what is true and helpful, so that it is an encouragement for others, and not damaging.

Sharon

“For the Scriptures say, “If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies.” (1 Peter 3:10)

“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” (Ephesians 4:29)
