Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge | Day 1

by Elouise

The more you talk, the more likely you are to sin,
If you are wise, you will keep quiet.
(Proverbs 10:19, New English Version)

The first time I read this proverb in the New English Version of the Bible I laughed out loud. The NEV doesn’t mince words, and the proverb is oh so true. Even though it has speakers in mind, it seems good for writers, too. Or even listeners!

My rambling tongue has gotten me into trouble many times. Especially when conversation turns gossipy, or when I’m tempted to talk about something confidential or that I know little about. Or to avoid listening.
