(Pro 18:21 KJV) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Many of us love to talk. I think of myself as a loner and an introvert but there are times when I realize my mouth has been running on automatic. That is a scary thing. What makes me think that people want to listen to my opinions, or read them in the case of my internet posts.
The internet is a reflection of the mind of God. Like God, the internet never forgets. It might be that your wife or a co-worker is the same way. What will the record show?
So? As usual, the less said the better. I guess a corollary could be that the well said is the exception. You never need to eat words that are never spoken.
