Proverbs 10:18-21

CHOOSING YOUR WORDS!

 

Each day we make many choices. We choose what we want to eat. We choose our friends. We choose our activities. We chose how we are going to behave. One of the big choices we make constantly is our choice of words. We choose what kind of words we are going to use.

God places value on our words, and our text tells us that our words reap results (Galatians 6:7)

 

REPULSIVE WORDS ARE FOOLISH Vs. 18

There are two types of repulsive words mentioned here.

There are lies which hide hatred.

There is slander.

The result of these word choices is that the person who uses these types of words is pronounced a "fool".

 

RESTRAINED WORDS ARE WISE Vs. 19

A person who continues to pour out words without thought will not lack for sin in his life. However the person who restrains, or holds back words, and chooses the ones he uses carefully, will be a wise man.

 

RIGHTEOUS WORDS ARE VALUABLE Vss. 20-21

The words of a just man are like silver.

The lips of a righteous man are encouraging to others. They "feed many".
