Proverbs 12:18 Thoughtless words cut like a sword. But the tongue of wise people brings healing.
What we say reveals what is in our hearts. Wholehearted obedience to God requires preparation. Repairing relationships requires preparation. Unless our hearts are ready for the task of meeting and sharing with others we have hurt and who have hurt us it isn’t going to go well.
We need to take time to pray about it, set a plan of how we would like the meeting to go and what outcomes we desire. God likes it when we take time to prepare for things with a spirit of thankfulness for whatever happens. We also need to take time to prepare what we want to say to people. The words we use can make all the difference in how we are received.
- Have you prepared what you want to say to people?
Prayer: Lord help me prepare what I want to say to the people on my list with Your help.
