Simple Wisdom Tip #2: Words

We often hear the expression “choose one’s words carefully”. We all know that, but do we always do it? Too often, at least for me, I wish I hadn’t said something or wish I had said it a bit differently. To this end, two of my favorite proverbs speak to this challenge:


"A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger (Proverbs 15:1, NIV)."


"He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity (Proverbs 21:23, NIV)."


These pearls of wisdom help me to think before I speak. Maybe they will also help you.
