Love has always been expressed first through the lips. Before every romantic relationship begins, words of love come first. We communicate our hearts through our mouths, and whatever is bubbling over from our hearts spills forth from the mouth.
Like a kiss on the ear a beautiful word can truly bless a soul. But a bitter word can crush a spirit. The words we use can hurt, and are often taken seriously by the one we're speaking to. We ought not to be caught saying things we don't actually mean, but expressing sincerity with the heart of Christ.
Knowing this, we ought to devote ourselves to having holy, edifying, and loving tongues. For if the Gospel of Jesus comes from our mouths, then what are hurtful words doing there as well? One should be careful to abstain from negative talk, whether toward others or of ourselves. Consider devoting yourself to have lips full of love as you choose words that heal.

Excellent Bible-centered approach to encouragement
I really enjoyed this book and will continue to use it. Adam Houge uses Bible verses to help the listener purge negative/unhelpful words from their conversations with other people and focus on encouraging words that heal rather than wound. The book is short, but filled with useful suggestions about encouraging others.
This was my first Adam Houge book, but I will look for others. Michale Griffith did a good job with the narration, and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be an encouragment to others around them.
