October 24

Proverbs 15:28a

The heart of the righteous weighs its answers…

I’m afraid things roll off of my tongue without much thought some of the time. But, before I speak, I should always consider the weight of what I am about to say. The tongue has the power of life and death. (Proverbs 18:21)

A righteous one will think before speaking because their heart is bent toward what the Father would want for the person receiving those words.

I pray the prodigal will learn to weigh their words; that relationships won’t be harmed or broken because of unthoughtful words. Even if we are provoked, God would be honored most by a response flavored with love.
