“Don’t 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.” ~Ecclesiastes 5:2
The verse above shows us that we have to guard our tongue and mouth. Paul likens the tongue to a small flame that can kindle a mighty fire. Instead of having to give excuses we should watch what we say first.
“Do not let your mouth cause your flesh to sin, nor say before the messenger of God that it was in error.” ~Ecclesiastes 5:6
We cannot trust excuses to save what we have said. We must watch our tongues (I know this from experience). This week, I am going to watch what I say.
