Day 319: Timely Word

Proverbs 15:23

Everyone enjoys a fitting reply;
it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time!

Principle

One Word from God can change your life.

My children never know what to get me for special occasions. They’re at a loss when it comes to trying to figure out what to buy. When they ask in desperation, “Dad, what do you want?” I’ll suggest that they just get a card and write a note.

I value words more than anything else.

Not long ago, I gave my son a card for a special day. He opened the envelope, barely read the words on the front, opened it up and noticed that I hadn’t written anything other than my salutation. He looked up and said, “Where’s the note?”

I had always written a note expressing my affirmation and encouragement in the inside of the card. This time I hadn’t. He felt cheated.

Jesus valued words more than anything else.

These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. – John 14:24

Jesus not only spoke what He had heard from His Father, but He said the words in the way that His Father instructed for Him to say them. He spoke words in a “fitting reply.”

It’s not only important to say the right words but also to say them in the right manner.

Remember:

Choose your words carefully and say them in the right manner.
