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

One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
