Now that I’ve just had two rotten wisdom teeth pulled, I’m thinking Proverbs 17:28 will bode well for me. Prayerfully, I’ll show the characteristics of a discerning sage while nursing my sore jaw. You think?
Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues. Proverbs 17:28, NIV
How fulfilling would we find our relationships if we held our tongues and measured our words, first? Looks like I have a few days to conduct that experiment and see how my husband and children respond!
Lord, let my few words be full of wisdom, love, and life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
