Proverbs 12:18

There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, But the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Reflective Thinking

God paints a serious picture here… “the thrusting of the sword” when we speak without careful consideration… like it kills people. However when we speak with wisdom it brings healing not killing. 

Action Idea

Knowing now how important it is to God to speak with wisdom it would be wise to study what wise communication is like. A great place to start with wise communication is in James 1:9, “Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.”
