God’s in Charge, Not You – the less you speak, the better


how to hold your tongue_wide_t_nt

Watch your step when you enter God’s house.
Enter to learn. That’s far better than mindlessly offering
a sacrifice, Doing more harm than good.
God’s in Charge, not you – the less you speak, the better

Don’t shoot off your mouth, or speak before you think.
Don’t be too quick to tell God what you think he wants to hear.
Don’t even presume anything
God’s in charge, not you—the less you speak, the better
.

Over work makes for restless sleep.
Over talk shows you up as a fool.
Over-asking is a little immature
God is in charge, not you – the less you speak, the better

When you tell God you’ll do something, do it—now.
God takes no pleasure in foolish gabble. Vow it, then do it.
Far better not to vow in the first place than to vow and not pay up.
God is in charge, not you – the less you speak, the better

Don’t let your mouth make a total sinner of you.
When called to account, you won’t get by with
“Sorry, I didn’t mean it.”
Why risk provoking God to angry retaliation?
God is in charge, not you – the less you speak, the better

But against all illusion and fantasy and empty talk
There’s always this rock foundation: Fear God!
You get nothing from meaningless repetition
So, let your words be few
God is in charge, not you – the less you speak, the better

Adopted from Ecclesiastes 5:1-7
The Message
I added 3rd line in the 2nd verse; the 3rd line in the 3rd verse; the 3rd & 4th lines in the 6th verse.
I also repeated 4th line from the 1st verse at the end of each verse to highlight the point of the first 7 verses in Ecclesiastes 5.
