How to Be Persuasive with our Words

Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good,
and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
The wise of heart is called discerning,
and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it,
but the instruction of fools is folly.
The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious
and adds persuasiveness to his lips.
Gracious words are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and health to the body.

Proverbs 16: 20-24

Not one harsh word, not raising my voice, not many words…. Help me, Lord.

  1. I think I need to copy these verses and put them right in front of me all day, every day. This is one of the areas where I struggle the most. God is good – he's growing me – now at least verses about controlling my tongue come to mind when I'm upset – maybe someday I'll stop and shut my mouth. Sigh… 🙂
