Proverbs 30:32  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 1
If thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.
We all have wrong thoughts at times. Sometimes a lot. And we often have evil thoughts. The advice here in our verse today is good. You had an evil thought? Hold it in. Don’t let it slip out of your mouth. God doesn’t want you to contaminate anyone else. And, too, you don’t want Satan to know what you’re thinking. He can hear words but not thoughts. May the Lord help you to control your thoughts so that they are pleasing to Him. But when you do err - keep your mouth closed!
