18 – Wisdom

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and instruction of kindness is on her tongue.

Forget the wisdom and kindness for a moment. She opens her mouth…. She controls it. She opens it, it doesn’t just flap uncontrollably. She doesn’t vomit words, allowing them to spill out on those around sending a retched stench through the room. She opens her mouth and out of it comes words of wisdom.

Wisdom is different than being a know-it-all. Know-it-alls vomit their words. Wisdom is spoken intentionally, with great insight and love. It comes out of a vault of experiences that has made one wise. It also knows when not to speak, wisdom in itself is wise.
As far as kindness – well those who are kind, speak kindness. After all, from the heart the mouth speaks.

A blabber mouth this woman of valor is not. When she speaks, others listen. Why? Because she not only knows what to say, she knows when to say it.
