Take control of your mouth

Take control of your mouth! Nothing will benefit you more and improve your relationship with others more than controlling your mouth. Below are a few of the biblical benefits and reasons for controlling what you say.

From Proverbs 15

1 A soft answer turns away wrath,        
but a harsh word stirs up anger.    
2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,
but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
4 A gentle [or healing] tongue is a tree of life,
but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge;
not so the hearts of fools [Or the hearts of fools are not steadfast]
23 To make an apt answer is a joy to a man,
and a word in season, how good it is!
28 The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer,
but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
