Day 33 – Watch What You Say
‘Watch your words and hold your tongue, you would save yourself a lot of grief’. Proverbs 21:23 MSG
I have a great concern, for some people have been able to destroy their lives because of what they say. The good news version of today’s scripture says: ‘if you want to stay out of trouble, be careful what you say’.
Sometime you spoke proudly and were not required to talk. Sometime you spoke against your spouse, and you could have just kept your mouth shut. Some other time, in your office, you decided to make a jest while you were not required to make one. Please keep your mouth shut if there is no need to speak, or if you cannot speak good words.
As you face the day, be careful what you say; at the coffee shop, at your job site, in your office, or as you cook the food for your family. As you return home to meet your spouse, be careful; don’t just make a jest that will make him or her feel angry. Your marriage, your work, your relationship, can be preserved if you would take care in what you say daily.
Remember, ‘whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles’ (NKJV). I pray that mercy will reach unto you today, in Jesus name. Amen.
