Scripture: “The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. Many a man claims to have unfailing love, but a faithful man who can find?”
Proverbs 20: 5-6.
“An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends; he defies all sound judgment: for a foolish man finds no pleasure in understanding, but delights in his own opinions”. Proverbs 18: 1-2.
None of us enjoys associating with one who has an answer for every question being discussed. It is great to have wisdom, but unless asked for our advice it is better many times to remain silent.
According to Ecclesiastes Solomon wrote the book: in verse one we find these words: “The words of the teacher, son of David, King in Jerusalem.” Eccles. 1: 1.
And he wrote there is a time to be silent and a time to speak: and the wise man knows when to put this advice into practice.
I feel sure that I’m not the only individual who regrets words spoken in haste or without considering the results, And it’s frightening that we are accountable for every word spoken.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, please forgive every unkind word I’ve spoken. and place a guard over my mouth that no other words escape which are unkind or hurtful, We pray and thank You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
