Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Fr. Scott's sermon focused on the Epistle Lesson, in particular the words of St. Paul to the Ephesians as found in Chapter 4, verse 29. He pointed out there are many warnings about the 'dangers of the tongue' in both the Old and New Testaments. He warned us about many types of corrupt communications including gossip, indiscretion, self serving flattery, prideful words, rash words, quarrelsome words, and angry words. We should always check if God is present in our conversations and use our words to edify people rather than tear them down.
