Proverbs 8-10; Psalm 144; Romans 12

by Faith Brady

Wisdom- The ability to use your knowledge and experiences to make good decisions and judgements

These proverbs speak a lot about the mouth, Proverbs 8:6-7a “Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right, for my mouth will utter truth;”.  10:11 “The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.” 10:13 “On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found, but a rod is for the back of him who lacks sense.” 10:20 “The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; the heart of the wicked is of little worth.”  10:31-32 “The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,but the perverse tongue will be cut off. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked, what is perverse.”

Solomon is telling us that it is very important what comes out of our 👄 mouths.  I had a pastor once that said  “you can either let the room change you or you can change the room” https://vimeo.com/272840943  This can happen by the words you speak or don’t speak.  To be wise is to have the ability to know when to speak and when to be quiet.  Change the room today. Be wise and prudent with your words.  The best way to do this is to start the day speaking to the one that gives you breath and continue talking to Him all day.  When we are in constant communication with our Heavenly Father it makes it harder for our conversations with the world to be negative. Psalm 144:15 “Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!”
