Proverbs 10: 19
When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable. But he who restrains his lips is wise.
Wow. I love this verse. Many words equals an unavoidable transgression but he who restrains his lips is wise.
I want to be wise.
It may not be the only thing we need to do become more wise, but it’s a good start. Thanks to social media, there’s way too many words out there in the universe. I can’t tell you how many times I’ll read something on social media and my first response will be to write something that won’t be so kind or useful. I’ll even write the post, but most of the time, I’ll delete it before I actually post it.
The times I don’t I usually wish I had.
For some reason we think we have to tell the world how to live, what’s right and wrong, how to feel or not feel. The list can go on and on. But a better choice is to restrain or lips–and our fingers!
