Zip The Lip

Cussing is everywhere. Seriously, it is. Words that used to be bleeped out are now so commonplace you hear them everywhere. And it's hard for a girl to keep it clean. We repeat what we hear. That's not just something babies do.

Ephesians 4:29 says this:
“No foul language should come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for needed edification, that it may impart grace to those who hear.”

Know that a clean mouth is something we all struggle with, but God tells us to take the high road. People are watching. People are listening.

So this week make sure your words are not something that helps you blend in--but do truly set you apart. And if you need a little help with some choice word substitutions, I offer up my current favorite commercial.

Have a great week, Cootie Queens.
