Today’s Readings: Josh 7:16‐9:2, Luke 16:1‐18, Ps 82:1‐8, Prov 13:2‐3
Proverbs 13:3 – Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;
he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
- Guarding your mouth = life
- Opening wide your lips = ruin
This verse is convicting for me. Hang with as I connect it to something related to but not completely contained within this verse…. Over the last few weeks I have been working on guarding my mouth. In my journal a month ago I wrote: “I need to consciously think 1. Pray (continually) 2. Listen (attentively) 3. Speak (boldly).” It has been exciting to see how transformational these basic steps are when I apply them. It has been humbling to see how often I do not get close to any of the three.
Apply: Today I want to focus on guarding my mouth.
What are tangible things you have done to guard your mouth?
