Apostle James said, “The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell”
We’ve all had those moments when we’d wished we had never opened our mouths and said stupid things that caused trouble.
Why did we say something in the first place? Where did the thought(s) come from?
First off, it didn’t come from God. Saying regretful words that lead to trouble emanates from our corrupt nature.
How can you safeguard yourself from saying something inappropriate? It’s not always easy especially if someone offends us.
The best way is to remain silent for a moment and think first before you respond. Take a deep breath and ask yourself, is what I’m about to say going to stir up trouble or cause someone to be upset? Is it worth me talking back or should I rise above reproach and let it go?
Even a fool who remains silent is considered wise.
He who guards his mouth and his tongue, Guards his soul from troubles.
Silence is golden
Keeping it 💯
