Proverbs 12 6-12-18

Can we be trusted with what we have been given? Are we Christ’s ambassadors to those around us?

Proverbs 12:22 The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

The LORD delights in us when we put into practice what we know. Choosing to serve Christ means choosing to listen. We have the Counselor inside us! Listen to His counsel.

Proverbs 12:14 From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things as surely as the work of his hands rewards him.

There is no greater place where this verse is true than in the home! There are several other verses that help us fill our marriage with good things:

[16] A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Guys, don’t be sucked into an argument. If she is cranky, gently find out the source–likely, it’s something we have done/not done or said/not said. With the Spirit’s help, fix it. Here’s how:

[18] Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Also, looks and gestures speak volumes. If we can hold our tongues, try to soften the eyes, too. Ladies, this is true for you, as well. Guys, show love; ladies, show respect.

[28] In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.

In all things, choose righteousness, for in righteousness there is life: life for your marriage, workplace, relationships, family, etc.

Let’s be good apprentices today as we walk with the Master of relationships.
