Get Wisdom Proverbs 13:3

Duct tape – it comes in all kinds of colors these days. It’s best use? Taping your mouth shut. It could help you get wisdom. Although…it might hurt coming off.

Verse of the Day

Proverbs 13:3,

“Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life. He who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.”

So basically, shut up. It’s important that we learn that sometimes we need to keep our mouths shut.

This might be wise when: Choosing how to react to people: should you run your mouth or stay silent?

It’s so important to learn to use our mouths wisely.

Reckless words make promises we can’t keep, divulge private information, offend people, misrepresent things, make a person undependable, and unenjoyable to be around.

“Think before you speak.”

Does it need to be said?

Consider what might be the outcome if you say what you want to say. I once made jokes while hanging out at as a camp pastor for a weekend. I thought it was all good and funny until I got a phone call from a girl’s parents telling me that those jokes had caused their daughter to revisit some old disorders.

I felt horrible.

What I said didn’t need to be said.

  • It wasn’t helpful.
  • It wasn’t uplifting.

Your words are powerful, not only for yourself, but for others.

“Kind words leave nice echoes.”

Again, “think before you speak.”

Does it need to be said?

Is it the right time to be said?

What will be the outcome if I say it?

There is a huge difference between responding and reacting.

Responding: thoughtfulness, premeditated words.

Reacting: going off without thinking.
