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.

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

An Experience to Remember

The elderly gentlemen carefully took out his debit card as his date stared at him with excitement and joy. “You know, we’ve lived in the area a long time but have never been here before. Where should we go first?” As I took out a map, and explained some of the festival highlights, the woman’s eyes began to widen with anticipation. “Thank you so much. Have a great night and a very Merry Christmas!” I exclaimed as the couple folded ...
