Why did God give us 2 ears and 1 mouth? 🙂Listen much and speak slowly is old advice that is good advice! Think before you speak so foot does not have to insert. More advice from older generations 🙂That’s about as deep as I can get at the moment. . .Have a good day Lynn

Yes, we need to ponder our words before we speak. And yes, our words should lift up, not down.

I think Matthew 12:34-35 would have fit better because that verse what talking about Peter’s accent.
You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
I have been thinking about that too.

Great thought to ponder – Lynn! Out of the abundance of the heart – the mouth speaks! If we love Him, we’ll tell them, Amen?

You’re so right, Deborah! If we could just fill our hearts, our mouths wouldn’t wreck so much havoc! Thanks so much! Blessings to you!
