Proverbs 25:11: Right Words

Jason Hardin has a helpful challenge drawn from Proverbs 25:11. He offers simple questions to ask so that we might speak the right words at the right time.

  • “Is what I am about to say appropriate?”
  • “Does it fit the audience?”
  • “Does it fit the situation?”
  • “Does it fit the character of the One in whose footsteps I’m walking?”
  • “If He were physically sitting right next to me, would these words still be the ‘right’ words?”
