The wise are so powerful in what the say. It is like the very old ad on TV, “When ABC speaks, people listen”. A wise person’s words just clear the air. We say to ourselves, now that is right.
Not so with the wicked. Imagine a very smoggy day in Los Angeles. That is what un-wise people words are like.
God’s goal for us is to be wise, speak the truth and clear the air. In the popular culture of this world, there is a lot of pollution out there. May we seek to find people, with wisdom and graciousness, can clear the air. What is wise in God’s world is much different than the wisdom of this world.
“The speech of a good person clears the air; the words of the wicked pollute it.” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 10:32)
