Rebuked

I love to write! I post to my blogs 8 times a week – twice on Fridays. I talk almost as much as I write.

My family gathered for a birthday dinner last night and I started talking. I was “preaching to the choir.” My daughter surprised me by saying, “Is this really appropriate dinner conversation?”

She was right. I went back to eating and someone else chose another subject.

Psalms 141:5, “Let the righteous man strike me; it shall be a kindness. Let him rebuke me; it shall be oil for my head; let my head not refuse it. . . .” Modern English Version

My daughter didn’t hit me, but her words rebuked me when I needed to hear them. She did me a kindness.

When in public, I tell myself I am not going to talk because I end up sticking my foot in my mouth. That is not the answer. I just need a stronger filter.

Psalms 141:3, “Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Modern English Version.
