When I am walking in the flesh — meaning, not rigorously & consistently connected to the Holy Spirit — I can fall into a trap.
The trap that says all my thoughts needs to be verbalized.
As if I’ll lose it if I don’t say it.
Even . . . correct thoughts.
But God has been pushing me . . . helping me to realize that just because you think it doesn’t mean you say it.
Because you know what? I’ve never regretted or had to apologize for something I didn’t say. No “walking back” what I never uttered in the first place.
Today: you will have a lot of thoughts.
Today: measure them carefully before they get said.
As Proverbs 10:19 puts it:
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.
