Wisdom from the Psalms 11/22

 

November 22
 
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
 
Kirk loved working with the young actors and actresses. They had such enthusiasm, and they wanted so hard to please. Kirk had many offers to move on to more "serious" theater opportunities, but he always chose to stay with the high school crowd. Little did it matter that each opening night gave him gray hairs. He died every time one of his kids muffed a line, but the feeling of triumph after every show made it worthwhile. He would live and die for his kids. He loved them.
 
Like the director of a play who knows all his actors' lines by heart, so God knows the thoughts and words we possess. He stands anxiously, waiting to see if we will use our mouths to glorify and uplift, or if we will muff our lines and turn to other things. He always knows what he would like us to say, but He still allows us the freedom to choose what will actually come out. Let us use our tongues to the glory and honor of God. Proclaim the love of God, and you'll never muff a line.
 
Prayer: O Lord, may the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart, be truly acceptable in Thy sight, for You are the source of my strength, and my salvation. Amen.
