The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12:18 (NIV)
Yesterday, we covered the topic of speaking the truth. Today, we are taking the idea a step further with speaking the truth in love. Good advice spoken in the wrong manner can be damaging to others. Our objective is to bring healing with our words, not speak recklessly. As you speak to others, remind yourself to season your words with love. That “seasoning” will make what you have to say to others more palatable (or easier to digest). How can you apply what you learned in this devotional today? What upcoming conversations need to be seasoned with love?
