Proverbs 13:3 Daily Devotional
It’s important to watch how you talk. While we do typically have the option to speak how we want, harsh speech can lead to ruin. Only through wise speech are our lives preserved.
Sometimes it’s difficult to watch what we say. We might let our guard down or something might slip. We still need to try our best here. You can improve in your speech through prayer and by finding someone to keep you accountable. Both of these require you to recognize there’s room for improvement, though, and are only as effective as you let them be.
Help me to guard my lips. When I want to speak harshly, give me kind words to say instead. In all things, at all times, let the words that come out of me be glorifying to you. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
