Proverbs teaches us the power of our words and their ability to reveal our hearts. Our language has great potential to bring joy or hurt in life, making it important for us to be mindful of what we say.
I once read about a Spanish ambassador who came to America and did not know the English language very well. In a meeting with an American diplomat, he began to engage in some small talk, and the ambassador was asked if he had any children. The ambassador tried to explain that, unfortunately, his wife could not have children. At first he said, “My wife is impregnable.” Then, looking at the blank stare on his American friend’s face, he said, “What I mean is that my wife is inconceivable.” Even with that reply, it was apparent to him that he had made matters worse, and so he thought for a moment.
