The art of saying the right thing at the right time

Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time. Prov. 15:23

Ever  finish a conversation then later think of the perfect reply or  worry that something that was said might be offensive or misinterpreted? Nobody gets the words right all the time. Communicating love and respect is always a fitting reply and goes a long way toward assigning the intended connotations to the words we say.

Lord, let Your grace be present in what I think I said, what other people think I said, what I really said, and what I meant to say.
