It is funny that we’re short of words when praying but always full of words and never lack what to say when chatting. Destinies, families, careers can be destroyed by the tongue. Many a time people get themselves into serious trouble through talking too much.
There are moments when silence is golden. The moment you feel the urge to talk too much, check yourself and ask GOD to set a guard over the doors of your lips. When you talk too much, you may lead yourself to destruction.
Talkativeness is a disease that needs to be attended to quickly. When we talk too much our knowledge diminishes because our ability to listen is mute. GOD gave us two ears to listen and one mouth to talk.
Cultivate the art of listening.
