Just to let you know, these verses still give me pause every. single. month. I read them and immediately think of Proverbs 21:23 – If you keep your mouth shut, you will stay out of trouble. (NLT) And also of James 1:26 – If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. (NIV) But I’m learning … it’s slow and with lots of missteps, but I am learning to keep my mouth shut.
