Self-Control Even In Speech

“Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble.” -Proverbs 21:23 NLT

Practice self-control even in speech. Not everything you are thinking and not everything you feel needs to be spoken. The problem with words is that once you have spoken, you will not be able to take those words back. Will your words edify or tear down? Remember out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

“The good man brings good things out of his good store of treasure, and the evil man brings evil things out of his evil store of treasure.” (Matthew 12:35)

“Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket.” (Proverbs 25:11)
