Ephesians 4:29-32
Sins come in all different shapes and sizes, but they all have the same price tag. No sin is any more destructive than another, but sometimes it is easy to overlook our small sins and only see the big ones. How often do you find yourself talking to a friend about what so and so did last Tuesday night? We talk about other people’s sin with the “at least I didn’t do that” attitude when in reality, we are sinning ourselves by gossiping. Ephesians 4:29-32 says, “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” We have no right to judge each other, only God knows what is in our hearts. – Lauren Taylor, Penn State college student
