Reckless Words – Proverbs 12:18

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Proverbs 12:18
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Reckless words. Words that are not thought out. Words that are spoken out of emotion. Words that are spoken with no concern of repercussions. These are the words that most often are the words that bring regret in the end.

On the other hand, words that come through wisdom are words that bring healing to the situation. So when a circumstance comes up and emotions start to rise, hold your tongue. Focus. Let wisdom flow through you. Let that wisdom bring the needed healing to the situation.

If we don’t walk in wisdom, words can come out that will only make the situation worse. It’s not always easy, but it can be done. At the very least, hold your tongue till you can pray over the situation and ask for YHWH’s guidance.

Speaking reckless words will get you no where. They will only hurt others and eventually yourself. “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
