The verses that I found most challenging in today’s chapter were all about words…and more importantly their consequences.
Truthful lips endure for ever (v19) and the Lord delights in men who use them (v22). The words of wisdom we have learned also have the ability to rescue (v6), give honest testimony (v17) and bring healing! (v18)
So the challenge for us all today is, what are we going to do with the wisdom we have acquired and discussed? In James we read, “do not merely listen to the word… do what it says.”
(v25) “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”
Who could you encourage today?
