Have you ever just been hit with a scripture that just knocked you out?
Last week The Resurgence sent out scripture verse as they often do but this one gave me more reason to pause and reflect than most. Because it struck a nerve.
When words are many transgressions are not lacking, but whomever retrains his lips is prudent. — Prov 10:19
It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I have a big mouth. I love to talk, one of my favorite activities is to sit around and have a good conversation. Most of my friends are story telling, entertaining personalities we are an outgoing group the often lets our mouths go for the sake of a good time. Often I have gotten to the end of the night and thought “that went to far”
Recently, I have found my mouth getting me into trouble the more I talk. Honestly at time I think it is my pride and ego the causes me to talk because I want to be though of more highly than I deserve. In reality I should more often keep my mouth shut.
