Thought I would encourage all of us to really think of someone we can bless today with our words. It may be a co-worker, a fellow student, someone in our neighborhood, our church, or even in our own home. This Proverb is telling us that speaking to our fellow man; even things that might be difficult; are a blessing to the hearer when they are “fitly spoken,” which means with the right timing, intent, and tone. So pray about whom you might speak to today and ask the Lord to give you the words that will be a blessing and adornment to your listener.
Not just what we say but how we say it,
Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
