Show me a man who cannot be silent and I will show you a man who speaks nothing; at best.
Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes through much activity, and a fool’s voice is known by his many words.
A fool’s lips walk into a fight, and his mouth invites a beating. A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.
In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.
God help me to be a man of measured words. How quickly I forget and use my tongue to bring death instead of life. Change my heart to be more like Yours. Enable me to bring glory to Your name.
