Today’s reading: Ecclesiastes 5:1-7

As we move into Ecclesiastes 5, Solomon gives us wise instruction about restraining our words.

  • Don’t be hasty or careless with your mouth (vs. 2)
  • Keep you words to a minimum (vs. 2)
  • A foolish person uses many words (vs. 3)
  • Don’t let your mouth cause you to sin (vs. 6)

All good reminders of how what comes out of our mouths can and will get us into trouble if we’re not conscious and intentional about the words we speak.

What helps you be mindful of and guard the words that come out of your mouth? In what circumstances do you find it more difficult to curb your words? What’s one example from your life when you chose to use less words and your decision made the situation better? Tami
