Open mouth...insert forgiveness

Ecclesiastes 3:7 tells us that there is a time to remain silent and there is a time to speak.  Praise God that He forgives us in Christ for those times we have said too much.  And praise Him, too, that He pardons those times we've been too timid, those times we've side-stepped our responsibilities to speak "the truth in love" to a son or daughter or to a brother or sister in the faith.
