“With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue will break a bone.”
Careless words are often destructive to both hearer and speaker, but words that are carefully chosen can hold incredible weight. In the Bible and throughout history, wise words have persuaded kings, deescalated conflicts, and transformed the hearts of people. The crafty tongue of a serpent is what led to God’s perfect creation being corrupted, but because of Jesus, your words can save souls for Christ. Pray that the Holy Spirit would guide your speech, and be ready to share the message of hope at every opportunity. Through your words God can plant a seed in someone’s heart, and by His power they can be saved for eternity.
