Dear Lord, it is exciting
when little children
begin to talk.
It is less exciting
when they discover
the shock value of bad words.
Words are used to reveal
or sometimes to conceal
our thoughts.
Rumors can be destructive.
Keep our conversations
uplifting and instructive
in your way, Dear Lord.

Matthew 15:10-11:
Then he called the crowd to him and said to them, “Listen and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but it is what comes out of the mouth that defiles.”

Children’s Song, 5th verse: O Be Careful Little Mouth What You Say
