“The Best Language,” Liahona, Feb. 2013, 56
Because we use the same mouth to pray, to share our testimonies, and to bless the holy sacrament as the one we use to speak, we must take care to keep our words clean and pure. The way we talk says a lot about who we are and the style of life we live. The Apostle Paul said, “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” (Ephesians 4:29). It offends our Heavenly Father when we take His name in vain.
The opposite of profanity is prayer. When we pray, we use the best language we can. As we communicate with our Father in Heaven, who loves us, it is essential for us to do so with purity and humility. In this way, we will be guided and be able to see the infinite blessings of the gospel in our lives.
