Speaking With Grace.
“A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.” (Proverbs 15:4 ) KJV
“If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. (James 1:26) KJV
Words have a tremendous amount of power.
We often don’t realize this.
It’s effortless to offend someone with words.
This is worse than physical pain.
How can we control the negative tendency in using our tongue?
Be a person who encourages others. Your words can help a hopeless person. The person who encourages others is used by God on the front line against desperation and depression.
Tell the truth with love.
It’s not enough just to know the truth. It’s not enough just to tell the truth.
The real wisdom is to tell it with love. You can quickly destroy others by telling the truth.
This doesn’t mean you should not tell the truth.
It means you should tell it with love. For this, you definitely need to ask God for guidance.
Ask God always to give you the right words. (Proverbs 10:32)
How do you know that the person you speak with will listen to what you say? Let God guide you.
Let your words be like a fountain of life: “The law of the wise is a fountain of life.” Proverbs 13:14a (KJV)
Who will be blessed today by your encouragement?
Speak wisely.
Application for the Christian life:
Give advice inspired by the Holy Spirit. Ask Jesus to guide you before you speak.
Do not use idle words.
