“Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time!” (Proverbs 15:23 NLT)
But it isn’t always easy to know what to say, is it?
I have a nervous habit of saying the most ridiculous things when stressed. Afterwards I cringe and think why didn’t I just say XYZ instead of that?
How can anyone know what to say all the time?
Well in films and on tv it’s easy, they have a script to follow! But in real life…
In real life things are very different.
In real life we ummmm and errrrrr. In real life we are never sure what to say. But in real life things are not logical and random.
Which doesn’t make it easy to know what to say, but that could also be a positive thing too. Sometimes it’s fun to say something unpredictable.
Who is to say that is not the “right thing”?
