Proverbs 30:32 (NLT)
32 If you have been a fool by being proud or plotting evil, don't brag about it--cover your mouth with your hand in shame.

King Solomon provides a wise proverb to think about. He starts out saying if you have been a fool, a fool for being proud or plotting evil then don’t brag about it, but cover your mouth in shame.

It’s bad enough when a person falls into sin. The person becomes tempted and instead of seeking God’s help to resist they fall to the temptation. They become entrapped and participate in whatever short lived pleasures the sin has to offer. Then they find themselves filled with the shame sin always brings in the end. Sin is deceptive in that it is alluring, but afterwards all of its appeal is lost. Yet someone will relive their moments of sin; recounting every second in detail. They will provide you with descriptions of their lustful nature, their state of debauchery and every other sinful detail when as King Solomon says they should be covering their mouth with their hand in shame. And what makes someone speak out this way is pride and the thoughts they harbor in their mind, which is what Jesus said in Mark 7:20-23, “And then he added, "It is the thought-life that defiles you. For from within, out of a person's heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, eagerness for lustful pleasure, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you and make you unacceptable to God."” What thoughts are you harboring in your mind that you need to turn over to the Lord? What can you give to Him to keep you from speaking out in shame? Pray that the Lord may help you to see what you might turn over to Him and let Him be in control of your life.
