Bible studies

The power of our words to encourage or destroy

This Bible study helps us to explore how our words affect other people, and what God has to say about how we talk to, and about, others

2016 Available in English, French and Portuguese

This Bible study is based on James 3: 3-12 and Ephesians 4: 25-32.

It makes the following key points:

  • What we say matters. Our words can cause pain, hurt and discouragement.
  • Our speech should build people up, not destroy them.
  • Our words should reflect God’s love for us and others.
  • This does not mean that we should never challenge any wrongdoing or injustice. The Bible is clear that this is part of our calling.
