Everyday Wisdom | Proverbs 10:19

"In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” Proverbs 10:19

This passage is one of many similar passages in Proverbs regarding the use of speech for wisdom or foolishness. In hopes of removing any confusion from the message, I want to establish what Solomon is saying and what he is not saying.

What He is Not Saying:

  • An outgoing personality is sinful.
  • A quiet person is necessarily virtuous.
  • Conversation and interest in people’s lives is sinful.

What He is Saying:

  • There is an inherent danger when we speak of committing sin. This should not keep us from speaking, but it should cause us to carefully guard our words.
  • The dangers of over-talking are:
    • An inflated view of our opinion in comparison with others
    • Not carefully considering the whole matter
    • Danger of descending into gossip and slander
    • Danger of betraying the trust of others
    • Danger of foolish talking and jesting – vile speech

It is important to understand the above points so that we do not miss-apply this important message. God has given humans the gift of speech. It is one of marks that places us in the image of God, a level above the rest of creation. It is not a gift to be shunned. It is a gift to be guarded.
