STOP AND THINK – We are masters of unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out. (Winston Churchill)
Sometimes we make great speeches in our minds. We know just what we’d say if certain occasions came for us to speak; we have just the right words. We’re the master of those mental words. The problem is that we too often say things before we think, and we are forever trapped by those unwise words. So, we need to think carefully before we speak.
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise (Proverbs 10:19).
