How effective are you at influencing others through your words?

How effective are you at influencing others through your words? The wise person considers how to share their knowledge in ways that will draw people's interest and attention. Considering what to say, how much to say and when to say it, are all elements of wise speech. Talking with God about the matter before we talk with others is always a good idea. Asking Him to sort through our words and anoint them so that they are appealing will infuse our words with appropriate humility and confidence. 

The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.—Proverbs 15:2 (NLT)

Prayer: Lord God, You are a master wordsmith, speaker, and teacher. I ask that You would anoint my words with Your Spirit. May my words be backed up by my life, so that they ring true and appeal to others. May they reveal wisdom, not foolishness. May they bring life and insight to others, in Jesus' name, amen.
