Let Your Words Be Few


Portrait of man with mouth covered with tape

Can’t determine what words are right or wrong,  necessary or destructive?

It’s okay to just be quiet.

Sometimes victory comes in your silence.

(Lord, have mercy, and give us grace for self-control).

Ask the Lord for the appropriate words if you don’t have them,

and the grace to be quiet until you do.

(Lord, let our words be your words, and our thoughts your thoughts).

********************
” 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.” Ecclesiastes 5:2
