Soft Wise Words

Those of us who grew up hearing the Bible taught have heard Proverbs 15:1 numerous times.  There have been too many examples of “harsh words stirring up anger” in the last few years. 

As I have tried to apply this to my own life, my first thought is “calm down!”  While there is validity to that thought, I need to make sure that my words have wisdom.  I don’t want to take verse one alone and forget to apply verse two.  Wisdom is easier to find with calm thoughts.  However, calm unwise words are still a risk.

As Christians we need to read and study God’s Word to make sure our words are wise and helpful.  I love verse 23 – good words at the appropriate time are good.

Dear Heavenly Father, please help me to have calm wise words at the right time in my conversations.  I want to help others to walk the path of wisdom.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.
