Proverbs 15:23 “A person finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!”
Do you remember back in grade school when the teacher would ask a question to the class. If you knew the answer, you would raise your hand as high as you could and wave your hand and hope the teacher would call on you so that you could share your answer with the class. It feels good to have the answer. And better yet, to be able to share that answer with others.
we have the answers that this dying world needs to hear. We have Jesus! He is the answer to all the tough questions that we face each day. You might not believe that you know what to say when asked but you have the answer. Each of us does. When life doesn’t make sense, Jesus is the answer. When the pain is too great, Jesus is the answer. When it seems like there is no way out, Jesus is the answer.
You can provide that timely word, that proper, perfect response, that someone around is needing today. Daily, we are given opportunities to speak life into this world. Is there someone that God has brought across your path that is in need of a timely word? Raise your hand, you have the answer.
