Thinking Before I Speak…

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. -Ephesians 4:29”

“Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. -Psalm 141:3”

These are definitely verses that I need to be reminded of constantly. I’ve always had a problem with my mouth, ever since I was in elementary school. I definitely need to watch what I say to certain people, how I say it, and I need to think about how what I’m going to say is going to affect people before I even let it out of my foolish mouth. So that’s my prayer for right now. And with that, one more verse to meditate in.

“A fool’s talk brings a rod to his back, but the lips of the wise protect them. -Proverbs14:3”
