Think about it…

rolling-stones-lips-logoHere’s what I’m thinking before I pass out into my post-surgery la-la-land for the night…

The Apostle Paul said, “All things are lawful, but not all things are expedient.”  (KJV)  Or in another version:  “Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial.”  (NIV)

The Apostle James said, Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.”  (NIV)

King David once said, Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.”  (ESV)

The North Point Ringmaster says it this way:

Just because you have the right to say, doesn’t mean you should.

Just because you want to say it, doesn’t mean you should.

Just because it’s true (from your pov), doesn’t mean you should.

Just because somebody is spouting the opposite, doesn’t mean you should spout back.

The pain meds are really starting to work right now.  I better take my own advice.  Later.
