The apostle Paul wrote, “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:19-20).
Why? Conversation is a form of prayer, whereby those speaking bless and glorify the Father in heaven. When we are inclined to argue, we should be thankful. When we are inclined to weep, we should praise. But when we are inclined to gossip, we should be silent – let silence be that prayer.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Prov. 3:5-6).
Be well. Shalom.
