I admire some people who are fluent in speaking several languages. Also, as for those who can quick to express themselves with a vivid language, their skill of speaking simply amaze me. Language is a tool of expressing our emotions, feelings and thoughts. As a pastor, I have to continue to work hard on expressing myself with words.
On the other hand, whether we are fluent in speech or not, we must watch our mouths all the time, because we can build up others or destroy others with our words. If we aren’t careful with what we say, we would regret for what we have said for the rest of our lives.
Let’s ponder Proverbs 13:3.
3The one who guards his words guards his life, but whoever is talkative will come to ruin. (Proverbs 13:3 NET)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear God, can You give me the wisdom to guard my words?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for the wisdom to guard your words.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share an incident of guarding your words with a believer.
