S01 E08: Words – Part 3

As the girls wrap up the first season of the Talk It Out podcast, they end it with a bang – talking about girls and our sometimes-gossipy ways. Joyce teaches us the importance of how we talk to and how we talk about each other, and the girls get some more tough love from Mama J as she sets us straight about how much our body language and tone can add to the words we say. Hear their own personal confession lists, and you don’t want to miss why Ginger talks about some “studs”!

Philippians 1:26 (KJV)*scripture version not exact version mentioned

That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

Proverbs 18:8 (AMP)

The words of a whisperer (gossip) are like dainty morsels [to be greedily eaten]; They go down into the innermost chambers of the body [to be remembered and mused upon].

James 1:26 (AMP)

If anyone thinks himself to be religious [scrupulously observant of the rituals of his faith], and does not control his tongue but deludes his own heart, this person’s religion is worthless (futile, barren).

1 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV)

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

Proverbs 27:6 (NIV)

Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.

Proverbs 17:17 (NIV)

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.

Matthew 12:34-37 (AMP)

You brood of vipers, how can you speak good things when you are evil? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. The good man, from his [inner] good treasure, brings out good things; and the evil man, from his [inner] evil treasure, brings out evil things. But I tell you, on the day of judgment people will have to give an accounting for every careless or useless word they speak. For by your words [reflecting your spiritual condition] you will be justified and acquitted of the guilt of sin; and by your words [rejecting Me] you will be condemned and sentenced.

Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

James 3:2 (AMP)

For we all stumble and sin in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says [never saying the wrong thing], he is a perfect man [fully developed in character, without serious flaws], able to bridle his whole body and rein in his entire nature [taming his human faults and weaknesses].

1 Corinthians 15:51-52 (NIV)

Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (KJV)

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
