Knowing When to Speak

Knowing When to Speak

A hallmark of Jesus’ leadership was that He always seemed to have the right words at the right time. He didn’t speak too much or too little, nor hold back when it was time to speak up. His words of wisdom brought light and life to His hearers. What can be said about your words?

 “For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken. I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”—John 12:49-50

Prayer: Jesus, direct the words we speak today, along with their timing and the manner in which we say them. Show us when to speak and when to remain silent. May our speech reveal Your presence and influence in our lives, injecting clarity and truth and wisdom into our conversations with others. We ask in Your name, amen.
