Today's Verse: Proverbs 10:21 (KJV)

Saturday, July 3, 2021

The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.
— Proverbs 10:21 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

I have several friends who are very wise in the way they speak. When they do speak up, everyone listens attentively because their words are always wise, well-timed, and worthwhile. Their righteous lives and careful use of words bless and nourish all who listen. There are others, however, that are constantly talking about everything and spending little or no time practicing what they preach. Their words are discounted as nothing more than their own desire to hear their own opinions about matters on which they know nothing.

My Prayer...

Holy and wise God, please give me wisdom and self-control to keep my mouth shut unless what I say can benefit those to whom I'm speaking. Help my words be helpful and true. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
