Thanks, Solomon. Everybody needs this reminder.

“The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking”
(Proverbs 15:28).

Nobody would close their eyes and then jump off a sinking ship toward a lifeboat being tossed to and fro by the waves. No, we’d have eyes wide open so as to make sure that we landed in the boat.

Yet, when we talk before thinking, we’re essentially jumping without looking. Not a smart move.

Let’s think about how our words will be understood. Let’s consider if our words will build cooperative spirits or build hurt feelings and high walls.

As bullets can’t be reeled back into a barrel, our words can’t retroactively be unsaid. Let’s speak words that heal, words that help, words the encourage, words that guide, words that protect, words that warn.

The world already has enough words flying around that condemn, that curse, that corrupt, that criticize.

As always, I love you
