The Difference Between Biting And Eating

I’d rather bite my tongue than eat my words. After all,

Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent,
    and discerning if they hold their tongues.
(Proverbs 17:28.)

    Me too, Tim. Ecclesiastes 3:7 says there’s a time to be silent and a time to speak. There have been times that I’ve been silent and later wished I’d spoken, but they are far outnumbered by the times that I’ve spoken and later wished I hadn’t.

  2. Surely the difference between biting and eating is a swallow.
    The question is whether it is
    an African or European swallow?

  3. Pastor Bob says:

    Simple and to the point.

    This is one of my favorite passages of scripture, and the hardest one for me to follow. I’ve been looking for the cure to verbal diarrhea my whole life.

    You are a wise, wise man! (said she who is learning how not to eat her words).
