Speak That Which Is Wholesome and Good…


You must be careful to speak that

which is good and wholesome.

Speaking this way will bless others..

 In a manner, that is “awesome!”


May the words that are chosen,

 be used for edification

May they be said in a manner

 of a Godly dedication!


As you speak… May you minister

 grace to the listener.

Brining healing in the words spoken

 to your brother and sister!


The words of kindness and love… 

May we all freely give it.

And not quench the work

 of the Holy Spirit!


As we are sealed by God

 on the day of redemption.

We’re called to be HIS example.

 There’s no exemption!


May all bitterness, wrath and anger

 immediately diminish.

So our spiritual lives can

 be daily replenished!


Be kind toward one another,

gracious and tenderhearted…

So the goodness of God…  Through you… 

Can be started!


As you forgive others

As Christ has forgiven you…

May we not forget HIS words:



The power and grace of God is

 what he’s anxiously revealing.

As you apply HIS words with

 a purpose and meaning!


By Jim Pemberton   Read Ephesians 4:29-32

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
