The Power of Conversation

“She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.” Proverbs 31:26

Have you ever wondered what “the law of kindness” means?

In her talk entitled “Proper Etiquette, Proper Actions”, Mrs. Becky Morecraft says that speaking the law of kindness is about thinking of others instead of yourself.

Instead of thinking “What does he/she think about me?” think “what can I do for them?”  Ask people “How can I help you?”

Engage in meaningful conversation. Chatting away about everything and nothing isn’t going to get you anywhere. And trust me, I’ve seen this firsthand and it’s not very pretty.

After all, what are people going to remember you for, hanging out and talking about this or that movie or what so-and-so said?

No! They will remember those meaningful, heartfelt conversations about serious matters.

And another thing, don’t just talk about yourself. Talk about the other person.

Ask them what they have been learning about in God’s word.

Ask how you can pray for them!

It’s amazing how God works through the words of wise people who speak with the law of kindness on their tongue.

You never know, someone may desperately need your help and you may be able to guide them to Christ.
