This video is an excerpt from my series of teachings through the Gospel of Matthew. In our society, many people espouse the idea that if you don’t have anything nice to say you shouldn’t say anything at all. That sounds great, but it’s not a biblical concept. Jesus did not live His life that way. We see in Matthew 3:7 that John the Baptist did not live that way. John called the Pharisees and Sadducees a brood of vipers. That was not nice. It is not biblical to go around and say we should never say things that are not nice. Instead, the Bible emphasizes that we need to speak the truth. Sometimes the truth is not nice. Sometimes the truth is harsh, but we have to speak the truth, and that’s more important than being nice.
