Highlights From Proverbs: Part 3

“Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from trouble.” – Proverbs 22:3 NKJV

I think one of the biggest flaws of humankind is that we are not careful with what we say. I know we can’t please everyone with our words, but we do not have to seek to hurt anyone either. Whoever said words can never hurt you must have been the most chill person ever, because the rest of us can be wounded by what comes out of another’s mouth. Think about all the situations that could’ve been avoided if someone hadn’t said a certain thing: a child being disciplined by parents for talking back, a teenager ending their life because of cyber bullying by fellow students, celebrities losing jobs over comments on social media, politicians making enemies of their nation by saying whatever they please.

As the scripture explains, watching what you say; thinking before you speak, will save you a lot of grief.

God Bless!

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
