In Proverbs 25:11, it says that "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." My texting situation has reminded me that when I am speaking with others my choice of words is important. How I say things make a difference with my husband and my children. I need to carefully choose my words. How I say things to my students affects the how well they will do in my class. I need to carefully choose my words. Words are important. My prayer is that each day I will use the right ones.
Dear God, Be with my conversations today. May my words be acceptable in your sight. May my conversation be full of grace and seasoned with salt. May my answers glorify you. Amen
