When to Keep Your Mouth Quiet

Do you ever wish you could go back in time to right past wrongs and prevent mistakes?

Often some of our biggest wrongs and mistakes are considerably stupid, hurtful and damaging things we have said to others.

Though we may apologize, our words cannot be taken back.

The key is to work on controlling our mouths before regretful words are even spoken.

Jesus Christ’s statement that we will be justified or condemned by our words (Matthew 12:37) adds emphasis to the importance of knowing when to remain silent.

These verses offer good wisdom about not being too quick to open your mouth:

 Proverbs 10:19: “In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.”

Proverbs 13:3: “He who guards his mouth preserves his life, but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.”

Proverbs 17:28: “Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.”

Here are more Bible verses with wisdom of being quiet:

● In the heat of anger – Proverbs 14:17.

● When you don’t have all the facts – 18:23.

● When you haven’t verified the story – Deuteronomy 17:6.

● If your words offend a weaker brother – I Corinthians 8:11.

● When you are tempted to joke about sin – Proverbs 14:9.

  1. The Church really needs to soak this one up. By the way, the ad on cod liver oil is extremely funny. All that lovely dark liquid pouring into a spoon, looks like maple syrup; yum, yum. I swig it down every day, but when I tell people my age or older, they all wrinkle up their faces and say how their mothers forced them to take it when they were kids. That photo could strike dread into them all over again!
