Dirty Talk

I have found that there are lots of us ladies that participate in dirty talk.  We do it everywhere.  The bank, ballgames, kids birthday parties.  Even church.  We say things that should make us blush.  Cringe.

The “dirty talk” I am referring to here is a kind of self inflicted character assassination.  It goes something like this…”Umm. That birthday cake looks so good. I’m not going to have any though.  My butt is already so big.”  “I am sorry I forgot our lunch date at Chick Fil A!  I am so stupid.”  “I am so fat.  Wrinkly. In need of medical intervention.  Shield your eyes as I pass by, please! “

If this is where you are at, consider the following.  Would you talk about others the way you speak of yourself?  Would you call your friends fat cow, loser, hippo girl, pig woman?  I bet you would be horrified if someone said such mean things to you.  So stop saying them to yourself.  Give up the dirty talk. Be kind to yourself.  You are worth it! 

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
