Proverbs 13:3 ” He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.”

A proverb that goes right along with the theme of this one is Proverbs 18:7, “A fool’s mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul.”  Anytime we speak before thinking, we open ourselves up to the consequences of our hastily spoken words…and all the potential havoc and calamity that comes with having little regard in the power of a offhand remark.  Especially now, we need to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry…(James 1:19) For there’s real wisdom in holding your tongue…and besides, even a fool is thought wise as long as he keeps his mouth shut! (Proverbs 17:28)
