“We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“You KNOW I’m right about this,” sneered Josie to Ellen during another less than polite diatribe about [you fill in the blank]. Over the years her condescending tone had become Josie’s hallmark trait, wearing down their once strong friendship. After pausing to lift a quick prayer, Ellen gently responded, “Yes, you might be right. Josie, you truly are one of the most intelligent people I know. By the way, I’ve been thinking about our last conversation, and I want you to know I’ve been praying for your whole family. I know this has been a difficult last few years, but I love you and am here for you.”

Often that brief plea to the Father for wisdom means the difference between tearing down and building up a treasured relationship.

“A word spoken at the right time is like gold apples on a silver tray.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭25:11‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
