If we speak to one another without thought or without being careful what we are saying, we are in danger of hurting, disheartening, and crushing others. Only the wise person is careful when speaking and God honors the words of the wise by bringing forth healing to those who hear.
Heavenly Father, please teach us to be wise when we speak so that we will build up with healing and not cause pain and destruction to others. In Jesus' name.
Read Proverbs 12:18
"Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." (NIV)
"There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health." (KJV)
