Today’s verses talk about words. We live in a society where talking is commonplace, but I’m not sure we always say much. Too many words often complicate matters.
Does this mean we never speak up? No. Verse 21 tell us that “the lips of the righteous” provide great benefit. The righteous seek wisdom. Wisdom will give us the best words to say.
I want to make sure my words provide benefit. I need God’s help with that. On my own I will say too many words without much content. I want to reverse that and speak more content with fewer words.
Dear Heavenly Father, please help me to focus on learning to say something meaningful with fewer words. I want my words to direct people to You so they will know what is wise, true, and right.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
