We have all heard someone say something cynical? When questioned they may claim they were just kidding. They end up hurting others with their words. Saying they were kidding was just a way of trying to cover up their critical spirit.
In Proverbs it says, Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth” Proverb 6:2 (Darby).
Many times the pride of our hearts can cause us to set ourselves up. We end up speaking words that were meant to impress others. Today is a great day for us to start impressing others with our silence.
