Devotions 20-08-06

Prov 15:28
"The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things."

It is important how I answer others. Sometimes my best answer should be "Let me think on that awhile and answer you later". I think I answer people to quickly many times and in so doing not give good answers. God says that the righteous person thinks and evaluates how to answer and does not react impulsively.

The wicked just says whatever comes into his mind and the possibility of evil being the results in very good. This decision must be made long before the question comes to me. Will I be righteous in how I answer people or will I carelessly give my thoughts and opinions with out considering God.

Lord, help me to ponder or consider in my heart how to answer others. I can think of several times in the past week that I did not give good answers because I spoke to quickly.
