Leviticus 13:1-59; Mark 6:1-29; Psalm 39:1-13; Proverbs 10:10
“He who winks maliciously causes grief,
and a chattering fool comes to ruin.”
Dear Lord, please grant me the wisdom to keep my eyes open and my mouth shut. For your name’s sake I pray, Amen.
“I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence.” But when I was silent and still, not even saying anything good, my anguish increased. My heart grew hot within me, and as I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue, “Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man’s life is but a breath.” Psalm 39:1-5
