Proverbs 10:19 "In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise." (NKJV)
It is so very hard for me to let my words be few. Every time a thought runs through my mind, it seems I want to comment on it. I think part of this stems from having an outgoing personality; but, it is also a lack of control. Jesus wants us to let each word have meaning and thought before coming forth.
Maybe, if we slow down a bit and think of how Jesus would say it, we could have this control and be more like Jesus. That is the desire of my heart, and I pray it is yours, also.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please let each of our words count and be a blessing to you; in Christ Jesus. Amen.
