Words of Good or evil
A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.
The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
Keeping watch on the evil and the good.
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life,
But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
A fool despises his father’s instruction,
But he who receives correction is prudent.
In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,
But in the revenue of the wicked is trouble.
The lips of the wise disperse knowledge,
But the heart of the fool does not do so.
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,
But the prayer of the upright is His delight.
The words we speak and think are of good or evil. Proverbs tells us the correct use of our words brings knowledge, life, and is a delight to the Lord. Today I pray you choose your words for good. Even our thoughts turn to words be mindful of your thoughts also.
