Have you ever considered how powerful your words can be? For some people, words come so easily that they don’t think about the impact even a casual word can have. There were some good things to remember from today’s reading.
Verse 4 of chapter 18 said, “Words from wise people are like water bubbling up from a deep well—the well of wisdom.” and in verse 7 we read, “Fools hurt themselves when they speak. Their own words trap them.” Verses 20 and 21, “Your words can be as satisfying as fruit, as pleasing as the food that fills your stomach. The tongue can speak words that bring life or death.”
Verse 12 of chapter 19, “The shouts of an angry king are like a roaring lion, but his kind words are like a gentle rain falling softly on the grass.”
So as we go through the day, let’s carefully consider our words, and determine that the words we speak will be the kind that bring peace and life to those around us.
I’m glad you were here today. God is good, and I’m really thankful to have you join me as we share God’s Word together. It’s a joy and a privilege to be a part of your day.
