Kohelet Five: Words

“Be not rash with your mouth, and let your heart not be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you are on the earth; therefore, let your words be few (Ecclesiastes 5:1).” I often fall into the trap of talking too much, or for a beat longer than necessary. While usually it doesn’t necessarily lead to trouble, it definitely isn’t the best quality, and I am working to be more mindful of the words that I speak, premeditating them rather than reflecting back afterwards and wondering if they were correct.
