Let your words be the genuine picture of your heart.
We probably shouldn't always be genuine. Sometimes we are genuinely grumpy or genuinely too opinionated or genuinely bitter. When those times arise, our best option is to remain quiet and seek the Lord. The book of Psalms has a nice way of reminding us where we should be in our walk with God:
When our joy is restored, then our words can be uplifting, helpful, sweet, and genuine.
