No Words Necessary

A quiz question could be ‘What cannot actually speak but has a massive influence right round the world 24/7? I find the answer in Psalm 19 – in the heavens and the sky. Here we read ‘Day after day they pour forth speech, night after night they display knowledge.’ Words are not necessary, they pour forth speech just by their existence, by night they display knowledge.

When I think of all the words that are gushing out of everywhere, in every medium possible, it makes me stop and think. We probably have more words now than ever before. So many words are lies, half lies, harsh words and harmful words. We can’t stop this torrent. All we can do is make sure our words are like ‘apples of gold in baskets of silver,’ helpful, uplifting, God orientated.
