Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. Proverbs 2:11
Growing up I remember a cartoon where the main character would say, “Savoire Faire is everywhere.” Savoire faire = knowing the right thing to say at exactly the right time. Obviously it takes wisdom to know what to say and when to say it. Often it’s a matter of not saying anything. Most of us have been on the receiving end of unnecessarily harsh, cruel, and judgmental comments. And most of us have also said those things and within seconds realize that it was the absolute wrong thing to say.
Pray that your words will be peppered with grace and understanding. Pray that you will be wise when you speak, even if it means you don’t speak.
