Be Slow To Speak
JAMES 1:19 NIV
19 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
How many times have you said something and later regretted it?
Too often we practice: Speak now and think later.
What would happen if you silently consulted with God before speaking? If you thought about, and prayed about, everything you said -- before you said it -- your life would be different.
1 PETER 3:10 LB
10 If you want a happy, good life, keep control of your tongue, and guard your lips from telling lies.
Words are powerful and should be used to accomplish a purpose. Don't just talk for no reason.
PROVERBS 17:28 NIV
28 Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.
Remember, you can always learn more by listening than you can by talking.
Be slow to speak!
SAY THIS: God, please help me to control my tongue.
