A Proverb A Day Keeps Stupidity Away X

CHP 10 v. 19

In the multitude of words sin is not lacking. But he who restrains his lips is wise.  (NKJV)
If you talk a lot, you are sure to sin; if you are wise, you will keep quiet. (NCV)

Imagine having to transfer water to a wine bottle from a bucket (20 feet away) with the use of a teaspoon. Is it safe to say that the more trips you make the more water ends up on the floor and that your chances of slipping and falling increase? The same could be said of our thoughts. James says to master control of your tongue is a gift and hard so why do we open our mouths as frequently and let thoughts slip out.

If you talk a lot, you are sure to sin; if you are wise, you will keep quiet.

PRAYER: My heart Your home, my lips Your instruments, Lord please guide mii, please help mii to speak less and listen more. May my lips be an instrument of praise and peace and not one that defames and degrades humanity.
