Verse of the Day, July 24, 2020
Proverbs 29:11 KJV “A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.”
Those who love wisdom will make their father rejoice, both on earth and in Heaven; but those who keep company with harlots spend all their substance. When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people mourn.
Those that love wisdom and knowledge, understand. They even understand that a fool utters all his mind. These are people who go from thought to speech with no filter or processing the thoughts.
They are like little children, “Mommy why does that man have a big stomach?” They say it right in front of the man. We have to learn to filter our thoughts so we do not utter all our minds.
This also lends itself to controlling what we say and how much we say (especially in times of anger or emotion). The days of, “I let her have a good piece of my mind,” are over.
The fool utters all his mind, but the wise keep it in until afterward. Be ye quick to hear, then respond to a matter, afterward.
