|Words from a wise man's mouth are gracious,|
but a fool is consumed by his own lips.
|The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.|
Our words reveal our character (Matthew 12:34) and we should choose our words wisely.
The fool makes false assumptions and therefore even more errant conclusions. He babbles on and on without thinking. (Ecclesiastes 10:14)
Let's be gracious with our words today, praying and reflecting before sharing and speaking.
As our grandparents said, "we have two ears and one mouth for a reason."
