Smart people know how to hold their tongue

Man, this is tough. Now Solomon was an amazingly wise man. So this is good advice. Here are three steps. It is interesting in that Solomon links not reacting with forgiving and forgeting. It is much easier to not react if it is the “first time” someone says something we don’t like. Forgeting makes that happen.

1. Don’t react and say it.
2. Forgive.
3. Forget

“Smart people know how to hold their tongue; their grandeur is to forgive and forget.” ~Solomon (Proverbs 11)

May I hold my tongue. Really Lord. Help me. Make me smart. Amen.
