day no. 13,083: shut it down and shut it up‏

Proverbs 13:3

The one who guards his mouth protects his life;
the one who opens his lips invites his own ruin.
If you like your life, you should set up guards for your mouth.
If your lips are quick to flap, you invite ruin into your life.
Guards are given instruction on who and what to let in and out.
Guards guard valuable things.
No one pays guards to protect things that the payer doesn’t care about.
Do you care about your life?
Do more shutting up.
Put your money where your mouth is.
Guard your mouth.
Employ wisdom and faith to protect your lips.

Don’t just say whatever you feel or think.
Don’t blurt.
Don’t have diarrhea of the mouth.
It will cost you.
No more airing of each and every real or imagined grievance.
You will have to bite the bullet that is your tongue.
But it will be worth it.
Your life is protected when you guard your mouth.
Your life is vulnerable when you open the gates of your lips to every emotion and outburst you feel intensely.
Choose what you say by allowing wisdom and faith to guard you and determine if the thoughts of your mind ought to be published by your tongue.
