Listen to the Word
The heart of the righteous weighs its answers, but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil. (Proverbs 15:28)

Does your mouth gush? Does everything that goes into your mind spurt out of your lips? Today’s verse encourages you to add a step to the process. Think before you speak! Before you say something you may regret, ask yourself a few questions: Is what I am about to say beneficial? Is it necessary? What is my motivation for saying it?

If you make a habit of thinking before speaking, you will prevent some ugly things from coming out. You will be delighted to discover that a closed mouth gathers no foot.

Live the Word
Think about the words you have spoken so far today. Are there any that you regret? What would have been different if you had taken time to think before speaking?
