Daily Devotions

Shabbat Shalom
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise. Pro 10:19
We are all familiar with the expression, silence is golden. Yet we tend to speak far too much in most situations. Often we speak to impress others because we feel we have to prove our worth and value to others. Sometimes we speak because we are fixated on controlling everything, including conversations. Other times we speak to show others how much we believe we know on a given subject. In any case, speaking too much often leads to sin. It is easy to slip and say something which offends someone or to become defensive or offensive in order to get some point across which others just don’t understand.
It is a good practice to let your words be few in all situations. This will help you to avoid rash, impulsive statements which apologies can never retract.
