Words of Worth

“Word Wise”

April 15, 2011

It has been said that “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Could it also be that a “Proverb a day keeps the devil at bay”?

Many years ago I began reading a Proverb a day, which corresponded with the day of the month, and which resulted in reading the Book of Proverbs 12 times a year. I have lost count now as to the exact number of years that I have been doing this, but it could very well be that I have read Proverbs 2,400 times and yet each day that I read a Proverb, I glean an insight that I didn’t glean the first 2,399 times! And if a proverb a day keeps the devil at bay, perhaps I have been successful in putting distance between him and me.

Cammy, an astute student and teacher of the Word, an Old Testament buff, and the ever so essential other half of Words of Worth, was not as enthralled with the Book of Proverbs as I was. Yet she came up with the idea for us to write a month long devotional on the use of our words as inspired by various verses of the Book of Proverbs. The end result was that in December, 2010, Cammy and I published a book, entitled “Word Wise: One King’s Wisdom and Another King’s Words”, in which we selected a proverb a day about the wise use of our words, and linked King Solomon’s wisdom with something that King Jesus said in the new testament. We can never be too careful with our words; we can never be too careful with God’s Word.

With extreme gratitude to God, we are excited to announce that our book is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and we would invite you to take a look by searching for “Word Wise by Cammy Tidwell and Sheryl Vasso.”

Believing that words matter and God’s Word matters most,
Cammy and Sheryl

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.”
