Just wanted to share a great read I’m listening to from Audible. It’s called “Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All” by Karen Ehman.
This book explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all.
The book looks into what the Bible says about the many ways we are to use our words and the times when we are to remain silent. Karen addresses using our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family, and strangers as well as in the many places we use our words in private, in public, online, and in prayer. Even the words we say silently to ourselves.
I found the book refreshing and it provided food for thought and a glimpse into the benefits of prayerful consideration of our words.
