I can’t say the thought is original to me, but it’s more than worth passing along:
You never saw a fish on the wall with its mouth shut.
It think that’s one good example on the wisdom of holding our tongue when the time calls for it.
“He who guards his mouth preserves his life, but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.” (Proverbs 13:3)
Albania’s most wanted criminal, Riza Malaj, decided to go fishing for trout last April (05). No poles, nets or traps for this law-defying fisherman. He went dynamite-fishing. However, things didn’t turn out the way he had planned. He underestimated the length of fuse he would need. So Albania has one less criminal on its Most Wanted List. David once wrote, “They dug a pit before me; they themselves have fallen into the midst of it.” There is a law that invariably is vindicated; sometimes early, sometimes later: “the measure you give will be the measure you receive.” This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
