This week we’re talking about words
Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord (Ps 19:14)
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up (Eph 4:29).
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business (1 Thes 4:11).
Slander no one . . . be peaceable and considerate . . . show true humility (Titus 3:2).
Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry (Jas 1:19, 20).
If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself (Jas 1:26).
Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech (1 Pt 3:10).
Never trust your tongue
when you’re angry.
