Proverbs 18:4 – The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters...

As deep waters hide what lurks beneath them, a person’s words may hide his thoughts as well as reveal them. Jesus uniquely knew what people were thinking deep within, and while we do not, Solomon warns us that there are depths beneath another’s words that we can’t see.

Proverbs 17:4 – "An evildoer listens to wicked lips..."

The father’s point in this proverb is to urge his son not to listen to wicked words. A wise son will never join evildoers or join liars. Good people must make it clear that they do not welcome wicked words. Sometimes refusing to listen to wicked talk exacts a price.

Refining Our Rants

Our instinct is to rant at people who have offended us, but lashing out at those who have wronged us is not effective or loving. Refining our rants means taking the opinions we have and the raw emotion we feel and backing them up with facts. It means taking an honest look at our ideas to find the best way to communicate them to other people.
