If you are reading with me, today we are on Proverbs 25. (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 25
Using the SOAP devotional method, here’s what I heard this time…
Scripture: Proverbs 25:15
With patience a ruler may be persuaded,
and a soft tongue will break a bone
Be patient and choose your words wisely, being respectful, to win
Hasty, angry words will not get me what I want. To win, I need to take things slow and choose my words wisely.
Lord, you know all that is going on with me, that is for sure!
As I make my way through big negotiations and little, help me to remember this wisdom to be patient and choose my words wisely. Arguing with someone aggressively is not going to show me victory. Please help me to keep my cool and be strategic where I need to be.
I love the saying ‘you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.’ I think that is very much what you are saying here. Help me to be cool, kind, and patient even when I’m frustrated and want to yell. Help me to respect even those who oppose me and proceed in Your ways.
Thank you, Lord.
Here is what I have heard in the past when reading Proverbs this way and using SOAP:
