‘Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles.’ (Proverbs 21:23)
The Bible is clear here concerning how to keep your soul from trouble. One solution is to be mindful of your words; that is the things you say.
Many people have landed in troubles of all kinds because they failed to heed on to this instruction from the Bible.
People have landed in prisons whiles others have lost precious belongings all because they were ‘loose lips.’ The saying goes that “loose lips sink ships.”
The book of Proverbs says that even when a fool keeps silent, he is considered a wise person.
Watch your words and save yourself from trouble.
Your prayer every day should be the words of the Psalmist in Psalm 141 that ‘Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.’
Enjoy a peaceful and prosperous life in God.
