Daily Verse: “Whoever winks the eye causes trouble, and a babbling fool will come to ruin.” Prov. 10:10

Winks tell tales.

A wink often comes before a prank. The quick eye-blink communicates a mischievous plan, sometimes in fun, sometimes not. Either way, some mayhem typically unfolds with a wink.

Usually translated as a sarcastic gesture, no matter the intent, winks give away the person’s thoughts. Mischief on the mind comes through in the blink of an eye.

And those who look for trouble will find it. 

Researcher Albert Mehrabian discovered three parts to communication with others: 55% body language, 38% vocal, and 7% words only.

Understanding body language will help us become better communicators and avoid trouble. Life comes with enough struggles without creating more.

Learn body language, and you will find the truth of someone’s motives.

Lord, forgive us for looking for trouble. Help us become better interpreters of body language and the message it communicates. Guide and direct us in all our ways as we strive to honor and serve you. IJNIP. Amen
