Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, He has identified you as His own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
– Ephesians 4:29-32
PRAYER… THE ACT OF CONTRITION…
O my God, I am sorry
and beg pardon for all my sins,
and detest them above all things,
because they deserve Thy dreadful punishments,
because they have crucified my loving Saviour Jesus Christ
and, most of all, because they offend Thy infinite goodness.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace,
never to offend Thee again,
and carefully to avoid the occasions of sin.
