An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Verbal Diet

(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.
