“Being Gentle with our Words” (Proverbs 15:1, 4; 25:15) Sunday, July 8, 2017

 

Call to Worship 

 

L:         God has given us the gift of speech.

 

P:         Therefore let us speak words of life!

 

L:         God has entrusted us to use this gift wisely.

 

P:         With care, therefore, let us encourage one another!

 

U:        Let our voices join with every creature lifting praises to God on high!

 

Scripture (Proverbs 15:1, 4; 25:15)           

                                   

Our reading comes from the book of Proverbs.  

1A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

 4A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

 15With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue can break bones.

Here ends our reading. May God bless our understanding.
