Wise observations from Proverbs on the effective use of our mouths…

 
“Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word spoken in the right circumstances. Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold is a wise reprover to a listening ear. Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him, for he refreshes the soul of his masters. Like clouds and wind without rain is a man who boasts of his gifts falsely. By forbearance a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue breaks the bone.” (from Proverbs 25:11–15 NASB)
 
Lord help me to consider carefully the words I speak! Help me know when to speak and when to be silent. May I be more aware of the power of words to build up or destroy – to influence for good or generate evil. May I look for your guidance regarding opportunities to use my words in redemptive and uplifting ways.
