Think Before You Speak!

Monday, 13 September 2010.

Have you ever said something that you regret? Perhaps spoken words rashly, angrily or even rudely? I think we’ve all done this from time to time.

Proverbs 13:3 says, “Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.”

Words are so powerful, they can either bring life or destruction into a situation. It’s easy for our words to run away from us, sometimes leaving behind a lot of hurt, confusion and misunderstandings. At the same time, words can bring such encouragement to others, uplifting them in whatever situation they are facing.

A Girl of Wisdom thinks before she speaks. She is aware that her words either breathe life or death. This kind of girls chooses to speak words of life. Even in the midst of a difficult circumstance, she carefully thinks about her response and endeavours to control her tongue instead of her tongue controlling her.
