“A truly wise person uses few words.”

My reading today in Proverbs 17:27

How often do we try to impress or control or lord it over others with volumes of words.

We may be completely correct, absolutely spot on with every single thing we are saying, and still be wrong simply by volume and sheer weight.

The Message puts it this way, “The more talk, the less truth.”

Something worth keeping in mind.
