Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
When I decided to take the 30 Day Wholesome Talk Challenge, based on Ephesians 4:29, I knew it would be, well, challenging. What I didn't realize was that it would be so difficult, so downright painful!
