40 Day Devotional: Day 38: watch your mouth


I found this quote on one of my Pinterest boards today, looking for some inspiration.

I really like it! The past week I’ve been in a monastery for a retreat. Although it was not a completely silent one, I have been spending much time in quiet solitude, and tried to practice the motto above during the meals with the other guests.

There is so much superfluity coming out of our mouths naturally. Certainly out of mine!
It requires a lot of effort to watch your tongue, but it is certainly worth it.

To try:
Be conscious of what you’re saying today. Does it add something positive to the world around you? Is it really more beautiful than silence?
