WORDS… Words can give hope, words can destroy. Words can bring encouragement; words can bring harm. The Good News Translation puts it this way; Proverbs 18:21 What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words. (GNT)

Hmm… Do we really accept the consequences of our words? Don’t stop reading because here comes the answer—Jesus Christ is our source for words of wisdom AND LIFE. Luke 21:15 (NIV) For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.

Let’s be honest, most of us don’t go to Jesus FIRST for words of wisdom. Words of wisdom are a promise and a gift! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten the words to say for a particular circumstance and the wisdom how to apply them. (I admit it; I’m not that smart, But Jesus is!) Living this life is hard, but receiving words and wisdom gives us victory in every situation. THAT’S COOL! Look at the result of words and wisdom from Jesus--none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. This is not about winning arguments this is about giving people God’s Word and God’s wisdom for life. God gives me wisdom for free and its my life’s goal is to pass on that which God has given me.
