Your conversation dictates who you are, some people are great conversationalists, where you could listen to them all day, and not get bored. Some people, however, use words in a conversation that could thrill you, impress you or just plain hurt and destroy you.
Now as a child of God, we shouldn’t let corrupt communications or conversations proceed out of our mouth, only things which are good, and can be used to edify, and minister grace to the hearers (Ephesians 4: 29). When you are in a funk, feeling down, depressed, and frustrated you need words of encouragement, edification, exhortation, and comfort; Don’t tell me I told you so or I warned you, or to inflict pain or hurt on someone else, that’s just temporary satisfaction that does nothing to your hurt or pain, it will just add insult to injury.
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, so a good person out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things (Matthew 12:34-35), which makes them a great conversationalist, which most people appreciate, and love.
But the evil person out of the evil treasure of their heart, bringeth forth evil things, which will lead to death, spiritually or physically, sometimes both. It’s so sad when you allow people to influence you to do bad, and not good, it shows how weak-minded and unstable you are. If God wanted us to think alike, He would not have bothered to equip us with a brain.
However, as Christians our minds are renewed, and we are not conformed to this world but transformed ( Romans 12:1-2); and because we are in Christ, we become new creatures, thus eliminating old habits, old ways, old conversations, and everything becomes new (2 Corinthians 5:17). People should see the difference in us, because our former conversations and conduct have changed, we are no longer lead or driven by the corruption that grew out of our deceitful lusts ( Ephesians 4 : 22-24 ).
So we crucify, kill or destroy the fruits of the flesh: Hatred, anger, un-marital sex, lying, stealing, cheating, bitterness, etc. And put on the fruits of the spirit : love, peace, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, etc (Galatians 5:21-22).
