Have you ever found yourself with a figurative foot in your mouth? Yeh, me too. Our words have power – the power to hurt or heal, mock or teach, divide or bring together (Proverbs 18:21; Ephesians 4:29; Proverbs 12:18; Colossians 3:8; Proverbs 15:1; Proverbs 16:24; Colossians 3:8). Proverbs 15:2 encourages us that our words matter.

The tongue of the wise makes knowledge attractive, but the mouth of fools blurts out foolishness. –

Proverbs 15:2 CSB

When we choose to speak kindness, love, and truth we are wise. We speak attractively when we speak wisely.

What does Proverbs 15:2 teach me about what I say?

God teaches us through His Word that we should be filled with the fruit of His Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), and that we will be known by our fruits (Matt 7:16).

Are you known for your kind and loving words, or for your foul mouth?

Are you easily instigated and quick to complain or lash out?

Do you bridle your tongue and speak with patience and wisdom?

By leaning into the Lord at all times and allowing His Spirit to fill us, guide us, and lead our reactions and words we can speak wisdom and not folly. Don’t be caught blurting out unattractive foolishness. Instead be found harnessing God’s Spirit that lives within you, allowing His wisdom to flow from your lips.

Have you accepted the grace of God?

If you have not accepted the grace of God and chosen to believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to pray to God now and invite Him in, accept Jesus as the sacrifice for your sins, and repent of your sins. Submit it all to God, lay it at His feet, seek the forgiveness of God, welcome Him into your life, and believe that Jesus died and rose again to save you from your sins.
