Proverbs 18:6

A fool’s lips walk into a fight,

    and his mouth invites a beating.

Proverbs 18:6 ESV

When I was a kid, “You are cruising for a bruising,” was a phrase often used to warn someone that their mouth was about to get them into trouble. The fool would not heed the warning. Note that it isn’t really the mouth that is the problem, it’s the heart. However, it is by way of the mouth that the heart is revealed.

A person that can’t or doesn’t control his mouth is a fool.
