Pure Speech and Character

Titus 1:15-16

Pure Speech and CharacterLord, to the pure, all things are pure. But to those who are corrupted by the lies of the devil and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. They claim to know you, but by their actions they deny you, your words, and slander your character. They are detestable, dishonest in deed and word and unfit for doing anything good within your body. 

Therefore we ask that you expose those who mock your teachings, distort your truths, and lie about your nature. Rebuke them, not for judgement, but for council, correction, and perfecting. May we walk beside such individuals and offer your love, grace, and mercy. May our speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, and pour forth from a humble heart. 

Amen and amen.
