Giving Testimony

“Speech is a gift of God, and one day, we must give an account of our words. Through words, souls communicate with one another. Also, through words, people get to know us. Therefore, we have no right to wrap ourselves in silence. (Jesus) (July 26, 1971)

Today’s Readings: It will lead to your giving testimony.
Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand,
for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking
that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute. (Luke 21)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, in these secular times, it has become more and more difficult to discuss matters of faith. As the world turns increasingly away from the truths of the Gospel there will times where, whether we like it or not, we will need to speak. Lord, so often, we do this outside of Your grace and fall down on our faces. Please help us Lord- give us the gift of wisdom in speaking through the Holy Spirit, not to win an argument, but to sow the seeds that will bring others to You and to Your Church especially as we head into what the world calls “ the holiday season” when we will be spending time with the ones we love and so want to save.
