A wise woman

In this hurried life we live, we put so much emphasis on what we do.The demanding tasks and expected accomplishments become our focus. In the rush of it all we sometimes fail to notice the seeds of change within ourselves. It is wise to stop and ask, "Am I growing or eroding in who I am becoming?"

A wise woman grows in becoming trustworthy.

Being a trustworthy person is being someone worthy of confidence; someone who can be relied on. The very first indicator that this character trait is visible is in the area of our speech. Are we worthy of the confidence of others? Are we known for our encouraging words? Do we let our own burdens and concerns become an excuse to leave our tongue untamed?

A trustworthy woman pays attention to how she speaks. She chooses her words well, knowing she can speak words of life and death!

"Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." Proverbs 12:18
