Proverbs 12-13

An evil man is trapped by his sinful talk, but a righteous man escapes trouble.
Proverbs 12:13

An evil man is trapped by his sinful talk, but a righteous man escapes trouble.

Thoughts on the Verse  
Talk reveals so much about our interior life, and an evil person has a lot to hide! But that brings us to ourselves. What does our talk reveal about us? Does it help us escape trouble or does it reveal festering evil in our souls?

 Prayer
O Lord God, may the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pure and holy in your sight. Through your cleansing Spirit, purify my spirit, heart and body so that I may serve you in honor and righteousness. Strengthen me so that when I do open my mouth, the words that come out clearly reveal that you are in charge of my life. In Jesus  name, I pray. Amen.
