Can we control the words that we speak? The Bible says in Galatians, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control”. Running people down is not a sign of love or self control.
As Christians we have the power to control our tongues. We just need to make sure we are dedicated to the cause of Christ. Are we in love with God? If we really are we will strive to do what pleases Him.
