When To Keep Your Mouth Shut... Angel Message

According to the ancient Talmud, the Creator instructed the angel Gabriel to write on the forehead of the righteous signs so no sabotage angels can harm them. So Gabriel, the judge of us all, discerns and marks an invisible "R" for righteousness when we curb our reactive behavior. To hold our tongue is one of the hardest things to do, especially when we think we're right. The ego always wants to get the last word. I came across this wise list of verses on when to keep silent. Usually when I stumble upon a "find" such as this, it's a heads-up. I'm about to be tested, and to welcome all the help I can get.  

May a warning bell (like in the picture) ring loudly in my head before I open my mouth and speak without thinking.   Whosoever keepeth his mouth and tongue, keepeth his soul from trouble.  (Proverbs 21)
