“The talk of fools is a rod for their backs, but the words of the wise keep them out of trouble.” (Proverbs 14:3 NLT)
Hello family, ever meet someone who said whatever they felt and they believed they were always right in what they said. Then they reap the consequences of their words and wonder why? That is a fool they have no restraint on their mouth. They choose not to use discretion and because of that they always find themselves in trouble.
Now flip that around. Have you ever sought advice from a person but that person did not give an immediate response? They only speak when necessary and when they do speak their words are on point and one time and make the situation better.
It’s easy to constantly say what we feel and think but what good is it! If your boss curses you out and throws a fit at you and you jump up and react on emotion and start jumping down his/ her throat, you may find yourself without a Job. But if you take a minute to check your emotions and come back in a level tone speaking not what you feel but what the holy spirit leads you to say, you will bring the situation down and get to the bottom of the real problem.
Sometimes we will forget to apply this but practice makes perfect.
Much Love & God Bless
