Wise Vs. Foolish

I found a chunk of words wisdom in Proverbs 12. It warns to be careful with your words. Don’t speak like a fool. In fact, heed some of the most treasured advice of all and that is, the words of Jesus ~ Let your yes be yes and your no be no. I say, use your words caringly and sparingly because Jesus said we will stand before Him on Judgement Day and be accountable for our misspoken words. Go the extra mile, concerning this matter, speak Bible verses and speak them in order to bless other’s lives.

Proverbs 12:

13 The wicked are trapped by their own words,
    but the godly escape such trouble.

14 Wise words bring many benefits,
    and hard work brings rewards.

15 Fools think their own way is right,
    but the wise listen to others.

16 A fool is quick-tempered,
    but a wise person stays calm when insulted.

17 An honest witness tells the truth;
    a false witness tells lies.

18 Some people make cutting remarks,
    but the words of the wise bring healing.

19 Truthful words stand the test of time,
    but lies are soon exposed.

20 Deceit fills hearts that are plotting evil;
    joy fills hearts that are planning peace!

21 No harm comes to the godly,
    but the wicked have their fill of trouble.

22 The Lord detests lying lips,
    but he delights in those who tell the truth.

23 The wise don’t make a show of their knowledge,
    but fools broadcast their foolishness.
