book of Proverbs has a lot to teach us about our words, their power, and how
God will give us the words to say to bring life. “Death and life are in the
power of the tongue” (Prov 18:21; KJV). In both Prov. 15:2 and 7, King Solomon
teaches that knowledge comes from the tongue of a wise person. Then in Proverbs
16:1 we read that the wise answer of the tongue comes from God.
we are regularly spending time with God, he will give us his wisdom and we will
be able to share that with others. Then
there is this beautiful verse from Proverbs 25:11 (KJV): "A word fitly
spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver". Finally, from
Proverbs: "a word spoken in due season, how good is it" (Prov 15:23).
you are still not convinced here's one more scripture: "The Lord God hath
given me the tongue of the learned that I should know how to speak a word in
season to him that is weary” (Isa 50:4; KJV). Here's the key, if we have a
teachable spirit God himself will teach us how to speak those words of wisdom
does this all apply to us as Christians? In Ephesians 4:29 we are exhorted to
use our words of wisdom to edify, build up, be a blessing to and encourage
others in their walk with God.
