News stories of corruption in politics are commonplace. But did you know your communication can be corrupt? You may consider yourself a smooth talker. But to be truly successful, you need to avoid something the Bible calls “corrupt communication.”
Corrupt conversation is negative conversation, such as mean-spirited criticism or complaining. The Bible wisely warns us to steer clear of such communication. Instead, be an encourager. Keep your conversations free of coarseness, jealousy and envy. Avoid corrupt communication and the results will surprise you.
You’ll wield more influence than you ever thought possible.
