What's in your wallet?

I am reminded of the Capitol One commercials that ask the question "What's in your wallet"?, these commercials are both witty and effective. For today's purpose I think of these commercials as it pertains to Proverbs 15 and ask the question what's on your lips? Let's look?

Proverbs 15

1 A gentle answer deflects anger,
but harsh words make tempers flare.

2 The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing,
but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.

3 The Lord is watching everywhere,
keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.

4 Gentle words are a tree of life;
a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.

5 Only a fool despises a parent’s[a] discipline;
whoever learns from correction is wise.

6 There is treasure in the house of the godly,
but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble.

7 The lips of the wise give good advice;
the heart of a fool has none to give.

So what's on your lips? Are their words of life or death, gentleness or harshness? Wisdom reminds us to sow good into the world, Christ reminds us to speak life always. So yet again what's on your lips?

Love P.J.
