After 30 proverbs – almost all containing some advice to limit our words and shut our mouths – I love that the book ended with the command:
Open your mouth (v 8).
Open your mouth (v 9).
There are times when we, as God’s people, are to speak up. Open your mouth, it says, for the causes of the voiceless and destitute. For the justice of the poor and needy.
Lord, give us wisdom to know when to be silent and when to speak up. ♥️
Thanks everyone for following along with me through Proverbs!
