Cutting or healing?
Thursday, April 28, 2022
The Bible is full of advice reminding us that what comes out of our mouths in the form of spoken words can either be divisive or can bring people together. This wisdom from Proverbs invites us to think about whether we want to cut someone down with our tongues, or offer healing remarks.
“Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.”
We’re seemingly programmed to open our mouths and speak before we consider what we’re going to say. Pray that the Holy Spirit can act as a filter for your words, so that you do less cutting and more healing.
