“Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
Has anyone ever insulted or degraded you with their words? Likewise, have you, in any way today insulted or degraded someone with your hastiness in words?
It is in times of emotional outbursts that we let out words that hurt. We must remember that the words we speak, we can never get back. If harsh words can kill, it would have cut this world’s population in more than half!
If you feel like letting out the anger through your hurtful words, then think again of the instance when someone hurt you through their words. Only then can you speak not in haste and be watchful of the words that you speak, that it may not be debilitating but rather bring the souls of those who hear it closer to God.
