"Don't talk so much. You keep putting your foot in your mouth. Be sensible and turn off the flow!" (Prov.10:19)
I love the Book of Proverbs! Today as I was reading, it occured to me that I am so blessed and challenged by many of the 'one liners' in this book of instructions, that maybe I should do a periodic blog, to remind each of us of the practical, easy to understand truths in this book.
This is a great one to begin with... it's one that I've felt the sting and regret of many times. Do you relate?...
I love the way God gives us such perfect illustrations of His thoughts ... (each translation is a little different, but all make the same point!) He knows us... and His message is delivered in these chapters with such clear and direct words that there is no escaping the truth because it's "too complicated"!... He speaks right to my heart!
I'm pretty sure that one of the reasons I love Proverbs is because each verse IS short and to the point... I think my brain is the kind that likes to get right to the bottom line, and carry away a message that I can remember through the day!... There is so much practical truth in this book. I am caught by these 'one liners' that pack a punch... Proverbs is full of them!
