“He who winks maliciously causes grief,

and a chattering fool comes to ruin.”

Proverbs 10:10

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
