“He who guards his mouth keeps his life, but he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.” (Proverbs13:3)

It’s important that you think about the words that you say out loud, about yourself, and to others. The words you speak can cause ruin to your life. Don’t allow others to speak about you in a way that will dishonor your life and the God you serve. Joy and pain are in the power of your tongue. Which will you choose?

Remember to ask yourself this

  • Is it true?
  • Is it kind?
  • Is it necessary?

If you are able to answer “Yes” to each of the questions above, then proceed to speak.
