Each and every day of our lives, we are all involved in a wide variety of (hopefully) working relationships with others. For everyone we come in contact with, there is a pattern of behavior that is displayed by both parties that reflects what the relationship is that exists between them. For the most part, this pattern of behavior is not ever given much thought, rather it is practiced based on habit or our present emotional state – which brings us to our question: What should our role be in various relationships? Are there sound guidelines that transcend etiquette and culture? Stay with us as we look into the Bible and try to figure out some details on how to best get along with the world around us!
Did you ever wonder how many words the average person utters in a day? Did you ever wonder how many of those words uttered are constructive, destructive or just plain idle talk?

Is gossip ever good? Do we ever slander anyone without truly meaning to do so? Stay with us as we look into the spoken word and biblical principles that can help us focus on making our words positive proactive and powerful!
