Patient: “Surely, you can’t be serious.”
Doctor: “I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley”

We need to be careful with communication. Words can be misinterpreted, leading to confusion. Does the Bible address that? Glad you asked.

Proverbs 18:13 

If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.

Proverbs 18:21 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Proverbs 21:23 

Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

Remember to think things over before you give an answer.

Give it some thought.
