A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
This week's blogger friend school assignment is to share prayer requests and to visit each other's blogs and pray for each other. A few weeks ago, I was reading the love dare book, and blogging about some of the devotions and memory verses. One of the days challenged me to examine my speech and my patience with my family. I blogged about how I'm less patient and tender with Sweetling than I should be. Over the weekend, I also felt convicted on the tone of voice I use with Dear Mama. I tend to be way too sarcastic and cutting.
So, my prayer request for myself is that I consistently seek to be more loving in my speech with my family.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
and she always says it kindly. --Proverbs 31:26
Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. --Ephesians 4:29
