1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV says, “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” Amplified says, “…corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character.” This verse came into my prayer for someone. However, as I was praying, the Holy Spirit gave me another insight.
Evil communications can also be a negative dialogue ~ communicating with yourself against someone or a circumstance. It is a mirror of our heart. It corrupts our character. It is manifest through our behavior, eyes, and body language, before harsh derogatory words are spewed out.
When we are communing with the Lord through His word, we are feeding our spirit. We are also mirroring Christlikeness to those around us. Meditating in God’s word is an inner dialogue that results in spiritual maturity. It is also reflected through our behavior, eyes, and body language. A negative dialogue is with ourselves, but meditating is communion with God.
