"In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his
lips is wise." Proverbs 10:19


Your tongue can get you into a lot of trouble. There is nothing that can do
more damage to your relationships than your words. Proverbs 17:27 says, "He
that hath knowledge spareth his words." That is, if you're smart, you won't
talk so much. When you do talk, keep your words warm and sweet because you
may have to eat them. There's an old saying: "The ears are open and out.
They're unguarded, but the tongue is behind ivory bars." When you're
talking, you're not learning. When you're not learning, you're not
communicating. When you're not communicating, there will be no intimacy in
your relationships.

In what ways has your mouth gotten you into trouble lately? Confess those
times before the Lord and ask for strength and wisdom to be a better

A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?

My dear Friends, have a tremendous day knowing that God Loves You, and is
always there with you as well! Amen

In His Love & Service,

Pastor Larry E. Campbell
