From My Bible Study

This morning this is what hit me from my Bible study…
{FYI I usually read the center section of Christian Woman Magazine called In Search of Truth as my morning Bible study and I don’t do them in any kind of order, just whatever I find interesting.}

EXCERPT FROM THE JAN/FEB 2014 CHRISTIAN WOMAN MAGAZINE
Search for Pure Speech – Lesson 5

God through Solomon taught His followers how He wanted them to speak. One way to have pure speech is to talk less. Solomon said in Ecc. 3:7, “[There is] a time to keep silence, and a time to speak,”and in 5:2, “Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart utter anything hastily before God… Therefore let your words be few” (NKJV). In Ecclesiastes 10:14, he wrote, “A fool also multiplies words.”…

The New Testament continued the principles of pure speech that Solomon recorded. Jesus said in Matthew 12:36-37: “But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.”

Did you catch that? LET YOUR WORDS BE FEW – Ecc. 5:2. Who struggles with that? Um, PICK ME!!

That leads me to think about another of my favorite verses, Proverbs 17:28 “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.”

And with that I will say no more.
