A Word for the Wise


From Matthew West's blog:  "the average person speaks between 25,000 and 50,000 words every single day.  Every day!  At the end of a week, that would end up being about a novel’s worth of words.  What if someone was typing down every word you said today, and you could read them back to yourself?  Would you find words that you’re proud of?  Words spoken out of anger?  Words you would take back if you could?"

Well, that sure got me thinking about choosing my words wisely, whether it be by pen or tongue.

  1. Good thoughts and a good reminder to guard our words and use at least a tenth of them for good. :O)
