Ephesians 5:19
“Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord” Ephesians 5:19

As followers of Jesus, what we say to one another and how we say it is a very big deal. Paul felt it was necessary to address the way the believers in Ephesus were to speak to each other as the family of God. He identifies three things that should shape the way we speak to one another. He mentions psalms (God-inspired writings set to music), hymns (songs that express worship and praise to God), and spiritual songs (testimonies of what God has done for us). This is not a command to make every conversation we have into a song; rather it is an instruction for our words and attitudes to be marked by the things of God. As our hearts are filled with worship and praise to our God, what flows out of our mouths will be honoring to Him and edifying to other believers.

Are your words and attitudes building others up or tearing them down?
