How to manage your mouth

It is definitely a sin to swear, cuss and to curse people. The Bible makes this abundantly clear. Ephesians 4:29 tells us, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

“With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.”(James 3:9-12).

Jesus explained that what comes out of our mouths is that which fills our hearts. Sooner or later, the evil in the heart comes out through the mouth in curses and swearing. But when our hearts are filled with the goodness of God, praise for Him and love for others will pour forth. Our speech will always indicate what is in our hearts.

“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45).

How to manage your mouth and speak good things, you will need to deal with your heart.

You will need to admit that you have a problem with your heart and that you need to be cleansed from:

rough, rude, explicit, offensive, cursing, crude, lustful, vulgar, blasphemous, disrespectful, wicked, Irreverent, ungodly, unpleasant, filthy, dirty, distasteful, harmful words that come from the attitude of the heart.

If you are willing to change, Jesus is willing to help you. Call upon Him right now and He will set you free.
