  6. Maybe, maybe not, it depends how thoughtful your words are. A considered response is my choice, I’m not good at keeping my mouth shut if I have a point to make. As long as the words come with good intentions, say them 😊

  7. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.

    The above is from James 3:4 in the Bible. It is a talk on the tongue comparing the helm of a ship to the tongue. “Withersoever the governor listeth” meaning that the director of the helm upon the ship will decide where it is to go.
    Yes we are accountable for what we say. Choose our words carefully for they sow like a seed.
