Dads, Your Words Are Powerful – Day 4

Dads, Your Words Are Powerful

As I hit the midpoint of the week and yet the last day of this devotional, I consider how words will have an impact today and have impacted the start of the week. The decision to live out Proverbs 15 can prevent fights and combativeness and make teamwork and collaboration possible. We read in Proverbs:

‘ A SOFT answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger. [Prov. 25:15.] The tongue of the wise utters knowledge rightly, but the mouth of the [self-confident] fool pours out folly.’

Proverbs 15:1-2

Be it at home or at work or in the community, the choice of words to use makes a huge difference! So as we close out today’s devotional, let’s pause to reflect on the start of the week and how words played a role, and at this midpoint let’s make a choice as to how we will use our words going forward!

Scripture for Today’s Devotional:

‘ If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!’

Matthew 7:11

God’s Word, Scripture, The Bible, ‘Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action),2 Timothy 3:16

Let’s be the dads who give good gifts to our kids! Let’s be the dads who realize how much greater are the gifts from God and how filled with love and life they are! Let’s be the dads who realize the importance of being a conduit for these gifts from God to our wives and kids! Let’s be the dads who remember that every good and perfect gift comes from God! Let’s be the dads who love God and keep asking Him!
