Nightly Reminder on Language: #21 out of 21

What do the words I use say about me?

“How you communicate should reflect who you are as a son or daughter of God. Clean and intelligent language is evidence of a bright and wholesome mind.” – For the Strength of Youth


“If you have developed the habit of using language that is not in keeping with these standards – such as swearing, mocking, gossiping, or speaking in anger to others – you can change. Pray for help. Ask your family and friends to support you in your desire to use good language.” – For the Strength of Youth, emphasis added.

Language Closing Post

Congratulations! The Language segment has finished! The next segment will be starting later today when I send out the initiation email at 6:00 pm. The topic will be Music and Dancing, and the segment will last for three weeks, until August 2.

One more thing before you let this topic rest: ask yourself “How have I been blessed by living this standard?” Write what you think of down. It can be a specific instance, a favorite quote, a feeling, a thought, whatever it is, write it down. Hopefully you have seen the blessings of using good Language in your life as I have seen it in mine.

Daily Reminder on Language: #19 out of 21

Today I, ____________________, will always speak kindly and politely to and about* others.

“Avoid gossip of any kind.” – For the Strength of Youth

Today and until July 12, I, ____________________, will avoid gossip of any kind.

*The words “and about” were supposed to be in at the beginning, but now that I noticed their absence I’ve inserted them for the last few days.


“When we gossip, it’s amazing how often the person we talk about finds out what we’ve said. People often sense when they are being discussed, or word simply gets back to them. Like the liar, we feel a need to look over our shoulders after having participated in gossip.

“Our relationships are again affected as we alienate ourselves from others. We feel a cold, hollow hypocrisy as we greet or deal with people we have talked about negatively. Our own feelings of worth and our outlook on life are affected as we expect others to talk about us with the same lack of regard. We become nervous about appearing less than perfect because others might talk about us. After all, how can we expect others to act more nobly than we ourselves are acting? Worse, we pull ourselves away from Heavenly Father and cannot feel the warmth of his approval when we are being unkind to his other children. We alienate ourselves spiritually and thus feel even more shut out.” – The Frigid Wind of Gossip, Name Withheld

“Jesus told His disciples: “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

““… Those things which proceed out of the mouth come … from the heart; and they defile the man” (Matt. 15:11, 18). Our words and external expressions are not neutral, for they reflect both who we are and shape who we are becoming.” – Is Your Talk Cheap? by Robert S. Wood
