If you are reading with me, today we are on Proverbs 13. (Remembering what to read in the Proverbs is as easy as remembering the day’s date when you read them with me.) That being said:
Today’s Reading: Proverbs 13
Using the SOAP devotional method, here’s what I heard this time…
Scripture: Proverbs 13:3
Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;
he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
Exercise discretion in what comes out of you mouth.
This one is pretty easy to decipher, at least for me right now: I need to think before I speak and exercise discretion. Not everything needs to be, or should be, shared.
Lord, thank you for this reminder to think things through before I speak. Please guide me in what should and should not be shared and, additionally, let be a breath of fresh air when I speak, rather than a discourager. Guide me in my conversations, please, Lord, so that they my be honoring to You and serve the objectives You have set out for me.
Thank you, Lord for this guidance and so much else.
Here is what I have heard in the past when reading Proverbs this way and using SOAP:
- Follow Through (Proverbs 13:4)
- Wisdom on Becoming Wise (Proverbs 13:20)
- Be Diligent to Get Things Done (Proverbs 13:4)
