When I read Proverbs 12:18 this morning the song “You Talk Too Much” immediately popped into my head so, I looked up the lyrics. Here’s one verse:
“You talk about people
That you don’t know
You talk about people
Wherever you go”
It takes real effort on my part to be thoughtful about what I say. There are too many words that I’ve uttered that didn’t bless and can’t be retrieved.
Today is a brand new day where We have an opportunity to be an agent of healing by the words we speak to the many people that we know that are hurting. But, this will take a deliberate effort on our part to develop a heart of compassion and to be slow to speak.
Proverbs 12:18 Some people make cutting remarks,
but the words of the wise bring healing.
