Verbal Lessons

Proverbs 15:28 (ESV)
The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer,but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.

*The cliche "think before you speak" is very accurate in this case. Sometimes we are so quick to speak with our emotions, have discussions based on what we have been through or experienced, or allow our tongues to dictate the final outcome before consulting with God on how to answer or thinking things through. Take the time to put a guard over your mouth, and ask the Father how to answer to any given situation. It doesn't necessarily have to be from a negative point either. If you are hesitant to speak words of love and security, then it is time to examine your heart; if you are being prompted to embrace, but can't let go of speaking on things of the past, it is time to examine the complacency of your mindset; and if you are having trouble speaking positively, it is time to reaffirm why you should be grateful. Watch your words, guard your mouth, and allow your heart and mind to receive ths wisdom of God...
