James 1:19 says to be “quick to listen and slow to speak”
Proverbs 12:23 says, “the heart of fools blurts out folly.”
The bible is clear. We are to be careful with our words.
Slow to speak. Quick to listen. And only fools blurt out folly.
With that fresh on your mind, please turn your thoughts to Social Media.
Few of us have ever had such a large and captive audience. I mean, the average person has the ability to reach hundreds, even thousands of readers a day!
What a huge responsibility!
How many foolish things do I blurt out to the masses? Am I really quick to listen and slow to speak?
James 3:8 says it directly, “no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.”
I wonder what James would have to say about taming our tweets.
