Proverbs 21:23 Watch your words and hold your tongue; you'll save yourself a lot of grief. Msg Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble. Nlt
Sometimes you just have to keep your mouth shut.
Especially when you are angry or provoked it's so easy to comment on facebook or send a nasty message to someone without thinking.
At times of disagreement, anger, or offense it's best to not respond; hold your tongue, stop your fingers messaging and close your mouth.
'A [self-confident] fool utters all his anger, but a wise man holds it back and stills it.'
In a Jerry Springer world that tries to encourage people to vent. That stirs up strife between people, that thrives on drama; hold it back and keep it in.
In church, on this Jesus way lets be different lets keep our mouths shut.
Father thank You for unity. Help us to keep our mouths shut, help us to be peacemakers, help us to be different this week and encouragers not discouragers in Jesus name amen.
