2 Kings 1:1-18; Jeremiah 34:1-22; Hebrews 5:11-6:20

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be…slow to
speak. James 1:19

Slow to speak means long to think. Long to think means careful
to speak. Therefore, each one of us should pray for slowness
of speech. Like a wild fire, sometimes our words can proceed so
rapidly out of our mouths that there is often destruction and loss
before we even finish. If only we could tame our tempestuous
tongues! When our thoughts have fully germinated into wisdom,
then through our words may the fruit of wisdom appear as a blessing
to others. —Shane Johnson

Awake, my tongue, thy tribute bring,
To Him who gave thee power to sing;
Praise Him who is all praise above,
The source of wisdom and of love. —J. Needham
