"I want to give God-centered advice to my children and spouse when asked, wanting the ability to recognize when an opinion is being given rather than a word from the Lord to their heart, which comes from God's Word."The only way to give a God-centered response is to know the GOD of the Bible.
"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer." Psalm 19:14
How many times do I just spout something out of my mouth before even considering what I am going to say?
Do I listen to what is being said or asked or am I going over in my own mind what my answer will be?
Or am I considering the Word of God and how the question should be answered according to His Word or is it just my opinion?
"Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding." Proverbs 17:27
Proverbs is full of the wisdom of God.
