“The lips of the wise spread knowledge, not so the minds of fools.” – Proverbs 15:7

Words matter! In this age of Facebook, up to the second news, bullying, etc., what we say can cause unintended and unimaginable harm. Our words are akin to hanging picture hooks. We can change our mind and remove the nail, but the hole remains. Lord, help me to speak wisely rather than foolishly.

“A fool despises a parent’s instruction, but the one who heeds admonition is prudent.” – Proverbs 15:5

Words matter! Looking back, some of the wisest counsel I’ve ever received came in the form of admonition from my parents. What would happen if before I spoke, I first asked myself, “Would my parents be proud or disappointed by what I said?” Lord, let it be so.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” – Proverbs 15:1

My mother sometimes admonished me, “If you don’t have something nice to say, keep your yap shut!” Mother was a deeply spiritual woman who used Scripture (in her own words) to teach. In this season of elections, debates, conferences, and councils, the Bible teaches us that words matter. Lord, keep me mindful of your words!

“The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever.” – Psalm 138:8

It is so easy to forget that God has a purpose and plan for our lives. Not only does God love us, but He is right beside us at every fear, every failure, every heartache. When you feel unworthy, or unloved, come back to God's promise: His love for you endures forever!

“Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.” – Psalm 85:11

What a verse for us to memorize and apply throughout the summer! “Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.” I encourage you to meditate on these phrases individually throughout the day, and may they be like honey to you all day long. Let God bring them back to your spirit over and over again. No matter your immediate thought or need, at this moment may God ever surround you with His love and presence!
