WELL SPOKEN WORDS

OBSERVATION: A WELL SPOKEN, SOFT REBUKE CAN BE PROFITABLE.

INTERPRETATION: JOB 4:4 (NKJV) YOUR WORDS HAVE UPHELD HIM WHO WAS STUMBLING, AND YOU HAVE STRENGTHENED THE FEEBLE KNEES. (THE BOOK) YOUR WORDS HAVE STRENGTHENED THE FALLEN, YOU STEADFAST THOSE WHO WAVERED.

POINTS TO PONDER:

ELIPHAZ, ONE OF THREE ADVISORS TO JOB, ADVISED JOB IN HIS STRUGGLE FOR LIFE ANSWERS. HIS INITIAL COUNSEL APPEARED MODEST BUT LATER TURNED VINDICTIVE.

RIGHT WORDS AND RIGHT TIMING CAN ENCOURAGE AND NOURISH SOMEONE SEEKING ANSWERS TO LIFE ISSUES. BE SURE YOUR COUNSEL IS BIBLICAL, CONTEMPLATIVE, NOURISHING AND ENCOURAGING.

GENESIS 50:21 (NKJV) NOW THEREFORE, DO NOT BE AFRAID; I WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU AND YOU LITTLE ONES AND HE COMFORTED THEM AND SPOKE KINDLY TO THEM.

JOSEPH TRUSTED GOD EVEN WHEN SOLD INTO EGYPTIAN SLAVERY BY HIS BROTHERS. DRIVEN BY GODLY CHARACTER, HE EVENTUALLY ROSE TO THE POSITION OF PRIME MINISTER TO PHARAOH. THE POWER OF GOD WORKS HIS PLANS EVEN IN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES. JOSEPH, SHOWED KINDNESS TO HIS FAMILY, RATHER THAN VINDICTIVENESS. HE GAVE THEM FOOD FOR THEIR JOURNEY HOME!

2 CHRONICLES 10:7 (NKJV) AND THEY SPOKE TO HIM SAYING, IF YOU ARE KIND TO THESE PEOPLE, AND PLEASE THEM, AND SPEAK GOOD WORDS TO THEM, THEY WILL BE YOUR SERVANTS FOREVER. (THE BOOK) THE OLDER COUNSELORS REPLIED, IF YOU ARE GOOD TO THE PEOPLE AND SHOW THEM KINDNESS AND DO YOUR BEST TO PLEASE THEM, THEY WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR LOYAL SUBJECTS.

WHEN REHOBOAM, SON OF SOLOMON, INHERITED HIS FATHER’S THRONE, HE INHERITED HIS COUNSELORS ALSO. HE REFUSED THEIR COUNSEL THINKING A YOUNGER GROUP WOULD ENDORSE ALL OF HIS DESIRES, HIS DECISIONS PROVED DISASTROUS!

APPLICATION: GOOD WORDS COST LITTLE AND CAN PURCHASE GREAT THINGS (PARTIAL QUOTE-BENSON).
