Teachable Moments

Teachable moments involve words

We often hear phrases such as “actions speak louder than words,” but God has told us that hearing words is foundational to our faith (Romans 10:17). Without words, we grasp only part of the message.

God has chosen to give us a lot of guidance regarding our words.  They should be wise (Proverbs 15:1-2); pleasant (Proverbs 16:21); and encouraging (Ephesians 4:29).

We know these principles. We apply these principles … but sometimes we do so only in relationship to other adults – not our families.

Yet, we are told to set an example to the younger generation with faultless speech (Titus 2:7-8).”
