Avoiding godless, foolish talk

"Avoid godless, foolish talk that leads to more and more ungodliness." 

                                              - 1 Timothy 2:16

avoid - To stay clear of; to refrain from

godless - Not recognizing God
foolish - Lacking good sense or judgment; unwise

ungodliness - wickedness; sinful 

This [ungodliness] of course, would include:


Speaking bad of others  
Speaking bad to others  

Edifying and building others up

Speaking when angry [without thinking first]

Things we should be speaking

Praises to [and about] God

Witnessing about God and his goodness

As a Proverbs 31 woman - our speech should always be wise and kind.

Proverbs 31:26 says "She opens her mouth with wisdom and on her tongue is the law of kindness."
