Scripture: Proverbs 30:32 If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, Or if you have devised evil, put your hand on your mouth. (NKJV)
Nugget: We’ve all had the instances where we’ve been prideful and/or exalted ourselves. At times, this included “putting our foot in our mouths”---as the saying goes. There have also been instances where people have used their words to devise evil. In either case, we must learn the skill of keeping our mouths shut; there are definitely times when things should be said, but there are also times when our prideful, or even deceitful, words can get us into trouble.
There’s power in words & the intent behind them; we must weigh our words heavily & use them wisely.
