Listen to Your Heart

Do not be rash with your mouth,
And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God.
For God is in heaven, and you on earth;
Therefore let your words be few.
—Ecclesiastes 5:2

The ability to listen is an essential life skill.

We are to listen to one another.

We are to listen to God.

And we are to listen to ourselves before we speak.

We need to listen to ourselves in order to use the right words.

When we speak out rashly, we risk misunderstanding.

If we listen to ourselves before speaking out loud, we can judge our hearts before our careless words harm others or sadden our God.

Remember: Words spoken rashly do more harm than good.
