God gave us mouths that close
Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear. (Mark 4:9)
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.’ (Revelation 2:7)
Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble. (Proverbs 21:23)
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. (Ephesians 4:29)
