Control Your Tongue

Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.

~ Proverbs 13:3 [NLT]

Do you measure your words carefully?  Do you filter and refine them before throwing them out for all to hear?  Much can be communicated between words such as attitudes, values, and perceptions.  Even as simple as changing a word can mean all the difference between offending someone or finessing a situation.  It’s easy to launch words for all to hear, but impossible to take them back.  Yes, opening your mouth can ruin everything.
