A righteous person is an asset to the kingdom of God. The words that fall from his lips bring wisdom to some, knowledge to some, and healing to others. He uses his mouth to speak life into other people and everyone who hears His benefits. A fool, on the other hand, lacks understanding. His words don’t build anyone up; in fact, they often tear others down. Rather than being a benefit to the Kingdom, a fool is an element of destruction. He talks without thinking and speaks without wisdom. As a result, a fool brings about his own ruin.
And we pray:
Father, I seek to be a righteous person. Help me to speak words of truth, wisdom, life and healing to others. Let every word that I speak be used for building up Your Kingdom and never for tearing it down. Help me to avoid talking or acting like a fool who brings about his own ruin, Amen.
