‘Do you see someone who speaks without thinking? There is more hope for a fool than for them!’ (Proverbs 29v20)
Have you ever ‘opened your mouth just to change feet’? Said stuff without thinking about the possible consequences and really messed things up?
Problem is, when we speak in haste, we often also ‘do’ in haste. We make life very complicated for ourselves and easily hurt our friends. What should we do? Well, maybe start by thinking before you speak (and sometimes it’s wiser not to say anything at all). How could your words bring more life and maybe a bit less mess today?
