There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.

Reflective Thinking

There are not many of us who can say they’ve never spoken without thinking. The worst part is that many times this happens to the people we care about the most. Our intentions are not to hurt them but because we spoke without thinking, usually in a heightened state of emotion, we speak soul-crushing words, and… if they are received by the other person’s heart it could impact them for a lifetime. It’s a rare occasion that words spoken without thinking produce anything good.

Action Idea

Today, ask God for help and wisdom to think before you speak. Always remember, be quick to listen… slow to speak… and slow to anger.
