Be Wise With Your Words

Be Wise With Your Words

It has been rightly said that God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason; He wants us to listen twice and much as we speak. I have had times when I never should have opened my mouth because, I ended up deeply regretting what I said. I know you have probably been there too. James in his epistle tells us that the tongue can be used to bless or to curse. The tongue can cause damage or it can build up. Proverbs 10:19  (NLT) puts it this way:

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

So be wise with your words, listen more and you will end up being a blessing to those who are around you. If you can tame the tongue it will keep you out of a lot of trouble.
