Proverbs 14:3 ” A fool’s talk brings a rod to his back, but the lips of the wise protect.”

A verse that goes along with this one is found in Ecclesiastes 10:12, “Words from a wise man’s mouth are gracious, but a fool is consumed by his own lips.”  When we speak before thinking,  we open ourselves up for imprudent and tactless language to come out…words that can embarrass us, malign our true character, and even ruin our reputation.  The old saying, “Loose lips sink ships”, is true…for our own mouth can often be our worst enemy.
