Today's Bible Verse:

Proverbs 10:19
When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Keep Your Mouth Shut

An easy way to keep yourself from getting into trouble is to simply be quiet. Especially if you are offended, upset, or angry—let your words be few and you'll be less apt to say something you'll regret later. Not only will it keep you out of trouble, silence may lend to your success in life.

According to the Christian Register, Albert Einstein considered this to be the best formula for success: "If a is success in life, I should say the formula is a equals x plus y plus z, x being work and y being play."

"And what is z?" inquired the interviewer.

"That," Einstein answered, "is keeping your mouth shut."
