I was recently asked what was the best advice I’ve ever been given. The thought came to me quickly, smile and keep your mouth shut.
Perhaps that doesn’t sound like very good advice to you, but think about it for a minute.
How many times has your mouth gotten you in trouble?
Scripture warns us to let our words be few.
Proverbs 10:19 – In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips [is] wise. NKJV
Ecclesiastes 5:2 – Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God [is] in heaven, and you on earth; therefore let your words be few.
So, while you smile and nod, ask the Lord what HE wants you to say and when He wants you to say it.
Once again I want to share with you some interesting sites I found this week.
I recently read Honoring a Child Born to Heaven and was able to share it with a friend who had recently had a miscarriage. She said she found it very helpful so I wanted to let you know about it in case you might want to purchase it for yourself or for a friend.
I was blessed by this article at Proverbs 31
