Time to Stop Talking?

Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.

Proverbs 10:19 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/pro.10.19.NLT

 

Have you ever dug a hole with your words?

I have. The hole got bigger and deeper the longer I talked. I should have just kept my mouth shut.

Words are an accelerator. When spoken in a stream of rapid interaction, words often take us to a place we did not intend. Proverbs says we end up sinning.

The counsel given is profound and of few words:

  • Be sensible
  • Keep your mouth shut

Encouragement: Let’s use our words to lift and encourage. Guard against run on speaking in heated moments. If you want to say a hundred things, it might be best to simply keep one’s mouth shut.

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for this proverb. May I listen to You more for guidance in expressing my words in this world. In Jesus name, Amen

It is a gift that brings joy, delight, and well-being to everyone within its reach everywhere. As a follower of Jesus Christ, the great unifier within families, communities, nations, and ...

This is Why We’re Here

On this particular Friday, twelve pairs of eyes looked down at Onyx and I from the arena grandstands. As I sat on Onyx’s sturdy frame, I looked back at the twelve campers. My mind flashed to Monday, the first day of camp. There was one camper who had been scared to get on her horse. However, after some reassurance and coaxing she had said she would try to ride. “I am so proud of you for pushing through your fear! ...
