The Tongue

Do you see a man who speaks in haste?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.
Proverbs 29:20
Young (and old alike) folk need to listen very closely to this.  It is safe to say that most of us have been caught off guard by a question or felt compelled to react in some rash way to thus and such an issue.... but listen to what Proverbs is telling us.
Rest on it.
Think it through.
You certainly do not want to be like... 
An angry man stirs up dissension,
and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.
Proverbs 29:22
The point is... if you see yourself getting backed into a corner or entering a setting that is likely going to make you react in a negative way... watch out.
