Proverbs 13:3 Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.
Opening your mouth can ruin everything.
I think it's safe to say that we've all experienced that. That moment when we say something we know we shouldn't, whether out of carelessness or to be intentionally hurtful. Harsh words can't be taken back and are difficult to forget.
Controlling our words is a valuable thing to practice, and something that we can only do through the power of the Spirit.
