Proverbs 16:21

The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction. - Proverbs 16:21

Dear Jesus,

Judging by all the words in red the things you said must have clung to people's minds for the rest of their lives. It's because they were filled with truth and grace. I want to be that kind a blessing for other people: to speak wise and discerning words that free captives and comfort the sorrowful and increase hope and joy for those who are depressed. Help me to use my mind and tongue to bring about the same kind a blessing that you did.

Pastor Don Patterson

Never underestimate the shelf life your words have in other people's hearts.
