My Big Fat Mouth
Proverbs 18:21 (ESV)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Every day you and I speak about 25,000 To 40,000 words.

  • The word “tongue” appears almost 150 times in the Bible.
  • The words “talk, talking, and talker” appears 125 times.
  • The word “speech” appears 40 times.
  • The words “speak and speaking” appears 480 times.
  • The word “lips” appears 125 times.
  • The word “mouth” appears 322 times.
  • And finally, the word “words” appears over 1000 times in the Bible.
  • When you add them up, we see that the Bible mentions communication over 2000 times.


1. LIFT UP Others.

Ephesians 4:29 (ESV)
29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Always be generous with your encouraging words, you may find they will inspire others to be the best they can be.
– Catherine Pulsifer

2. HONOR Others.

Romans 12:10 (ESV)
10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

3. PRAISE God!

Psalm 34:1-4 (ESV)
1 I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
Hebrews 13:15 (ESV)
15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
