These are my notes in preparation for our 12/29/2010 church meeting.

Leader:  Russ Farmer


We'll be discussing "speaking" and "listening"...think of times in your life where your mouth may have gotten you in trouble when your ears could have saved you.  We will be examining the wisdom of the Bible on these topics, and feel free to bring any verses that you feel focus on this topic.

My Notes search on "speak" in Wisdom Books

  • Prov. 8:5-7, 33

James 1:19-20 are the key verses on this subject for me.  Most of the time we get ourselves in trouble because we speak before thinking.
