Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing.
My brethren, these things ought not to be so.
A reprimand is in order here as we read this verse today,
Because it's very important the things we daily say.
How sad to hear cursing from believers; this should never be,
Let's learn to only bless because to this we all agree.
For Jesus sake let's clean up our speech and don't use bad language again,
By doing this we'll please the Lord, and be happier than we've ever been.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the
Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
Talk is cheap these days, and people say many things,
Would most talk like that before presidents and kings?
God warns us to not take His name in vain; this is wrong,
Those who thus speak, apparently to God don't belong.
Pure speech is ordered by the Lord for every one of us,
Don't take God's name in vain; so there will be less fuss.
|MT BAKER VIEW FROM CHURCH ROAD - A SHORT DISTANCE FROM OUR HOUSE
|In a place where there is plenty of
green things (in the Amazon jungles)
it seemed that we were still always
short on vegetables. We learned
there was a very edible part of palm
trees that would be very satisfying.
We were thrilled to discover the
heart of the palm tree.........
Our book is ideal for family
devotions. Each short story of our
work in Brazil, ends with a Scripture
verse, making a spiritual application.
I know you will like it.
