Do you speak first and think later? I think the condition is contagious and I often recognize all the symptoms in others, before admitting I am also infected! The competition for speaking the most words must be great. We are always ready to practice!
How often do we correct small children for talking out of turn, or being cruel to their little friends? We need to take a little of our own advice. Do you remember the children's game of silence? An adult usually gives the challenge to two or more children to see who can go the longest without speaking. A few minutes of peace and quiet is appreciated. I think I'm a loser even before I start; because I talk to myself!
Sometimes God lovingly allows laryngitis to give our voices a rest! "Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips (Psalm 141:3 NAS)."Master, muzzle me!
