Topic: Wisdom is in your lips [Tuesday 1 December, 2015]

“Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.”Proverbs 24:26

Have you ever sat to imagine how “sugar ants” gets into anything sweet no matter how sealed it is? At first, I used to think they could perceive the fragrance from the product, but on second thought, I doubted their great smelling ability. Or don’t you? The truth is that it is not about the fragrance, but their extraordinary sensitivity to detect the sugary content in anything. Not only that, no one ever rejects anything sweet.

Just as ants can tell sugary substances from a distance, humans can also detect if someone is filled with wisdom and/or other sugary intellectual substances. These can easily be detected through the words of your mouth. And no one would actually resist the influence of right words. Enclosed in your mouth is the ability to draw people closer to you, or send them far away from you. Your encounter with wisdom does not leave you empty; it must attract favour and fame.

I have heard so many people say how they enjoy mingling with older people because of the wisdom from their words. But do you know that you don’t have to be old to be wise? Solomon wasn’t old when God granted him access to His wisdom. You can acquire and speak with wisdom irrespective of your age. It only takes your interest and searching the right source – the Word of God.

True wisdom comes with revelations from the Word of God. However, you need to speak those right words if others would be attracted to the wisdom of God at work in you. Your tongue is a fruitful member of your body and in most cases, it’s what attracts others to you. Living a life of impact entails some level of discipline and your words are inclusive. Therefore, today, embrace wisdom and speak it at all times.

Remain Blessed!
