She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. ~ Proverbs 31:26
It’s hard to believe that the month of March is over, and so is our “March” through Proverbs. It’s kind of bittersweet. It feels good to have read through a book of the Bible, doesn’t it? But I’m kind of sad that our journey together has come to an end. The good news is that we can just flip back a few pages tomorrow, on April first, and begin again! For me, one time through Proverbs (or one hundred times) just isn’t enough. Please feel free to share with me through this blog, my email, or any one of the 5,000 other social media outlets, a blessing that you receive from Proverbs. My online door is always open, so please come by.
Many of these posts have been about words, so I thought it would be fitting to end on one about words. I love Proverbs 31! This chapter convicts me every time I read it. There is so much here, that it was hard to select just one verse to write about. I think for me, today’s verse was it. If I could open my mouth with wisdom, if I could use kindness in all of my words, I would be a better person. But it’s not just my words that need more kindness, my whole demeanor could use it. I catch myself frowning a lot, and scowling at my children. I don’t want to be that way. I know there is a time for firmness, but it isn’t all the time. I want to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. It’s a constant battle! I have much growing to do, and the job certainly is daunting. I’m so thankful to have a loving, patient Heavenly Father to forgive me when I fail, and guide me as I grow. This chapter is what I’m aiming for in my life. This is the lady I want to be.
Thank you, again, for joining me. May your life be filled to overflowing with blessings from God’s Word!
