Sandpaper....OR Honey Words

In the Bible,
God gives us His words of wisdom.
Here are some of God's words to ponder today:

A soft answer turneth away wrath:
but grievous words stir up anger.
Proverbs 15:1

...but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
Proverbs 15:26b

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,
sweet to the soul,
and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24

Even a fool,
When  he holdeth his peace,
is counted wise:
and he that shutteth his lips
 is esteemed a man of understanding.
Proverbs 17:28

He that goeth about as a talebearer
revealeth secrets:
therefore meddle not
with him that flattereth with his lips.
Proverbs 20:19

Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue
keepeth his soul from troubles.
Proverbs 21:23

Thanks for posting these great reminders/truths! I have a continual battle with my mouth. Many years ago, I underlined all the verses in Proverbs that had ANYTHING to do with mouth, tongue, words, etc.

(And really, you don't have to keep up with me in the footstool department. I've gone a little overboard, I think!)

I really enjoyed the post.... I think I babble with my mouth when around everyone, but once in front of a stranger I seem to shut it and not really say much not even about the Lord... So I must work on it lol
