Spoken Words

Have you ever been taken a back by someone's words? You may question yourself after a conversation asking,"Did she just say that?" Or find yourself apologizing after something you said "Oh no that's not what I meant" I watched an interview with President Obama Sunday. The interviewer asked several questions about the decision to "take out" public enemy number one. One question stuck out, more then others. The interviewer asked "Mr. President you did tell your wife about your plans didn't you?" The first thing you noticed when the president answered was a small hardly noticeable pause. Then he raised up a little so that his eyes met the reporters. He then very intentionally answered the question without answering the question. Words skillfully put can avoid a question. Words nicely put can lift some ones spirit. Words eloquently put, make great conversation. Proverbs 25:11 Says a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. Ask the Lord to give you wisdom and to guide you in your spoken word, today and everyday.
