James 5:12
________________________________________________________________
12And since you know that He cares, let your language show it. Don't add words like "I swear to God" to your own words. Don't show your impatience by concocting oaths to hurry up God. Just let your yes be yes and let your no be no.

I Peter 4
__________________________________________________________________
Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God's words; if help, let it be God's hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything

Matthew 5:16
______________________________________________________________
let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
_____________________________________________________________
This verse presupposes that the light in us is sometimes saying, "let me out!!"
So the question then becomes, "what is it that stops or impedes our light from shining? The beginning of the very next verse gives us a clue..."Do not think....."
Friends our thoughts will either release or withhold our light from shining.

__________________________________________________________________
If you've gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead.
