Loose lips

Proverbs 13:3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: But he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

If we learn to control our mouth, it will greatly improve our life. If you open your mouth and say all that you think you are only asking to get hurt. This lesson applies to what you say on social media also. Too often, we say things without thinking. We let our anger rule our mouth.

We also think people will understand us and what we said. It surprises us that what we meant one way is taken another way. We offend. We get hurt back in response to what we said.

The wise man said to get your mouth under control, or you would suffer from your loose lips. Let’s use some discretion. Let’s not mention everything we know all at once!
