Right now I reading through Proverbs in my reading through the Bible in a year, and today I read one of my favorite proverbs.
"When words are many, sin is not absent,
but he who holds his tongue is wise."
So if you are in an argument or counseling someone, sometimes the best thing to do it is to hold your tongue. With many words, sin is not absent. Boy, do I need to read this proverb everyday!
