Ancient Proverb "A word and a stone let go cannot be recalled."
There are some things in life that cannot be undone. They may be forgiven, repaired and restored; but they will always leave a slight shadow. Learning to think things through is a vital discipline to develop... "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer" (Psalm 19:14).
When walking in Faith, our inner-man is governed by God's Wisdom rather than temporary passions. We don't "let fly" without considering the long term effect on ourselves, and on the target of our words. The old "Count To Ten" recommendation is pretty good advice. In fact, sometimes it might be well to count to a thousand while praying, and then, not say anything at all.
Have a great day and enjoy the journey!
