“He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool. In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise."
The more words we speak, the greater the probability of finding ourselves in sin; therefore, it is wise to keep our mouths closed.
“The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.”
What are your words worth? The words we speak show the state of our hearts.
The wise are careful with each word that the utter. We must be aware of the effect the words we speak have on our testimony.
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”
It is wise for our words to revolve around the Word of God.
