Too often we may find ourselves being careless with our words.
Instead of just spewing them out, set a guard over the door of your lips - keep yourself from calamity.
Before you speak, pause and think:
Is what I'm about to say true?
Is it kind?
Is it beneficial?
Is it necessary?
Does it build up or tear down?
If the answer to any of the questions above is NO, better keep your mouth shut!
Use the power of your words to bring healing, encouragement and blessings, not to hurt and destroy.
How often do you let your guard down and say words that you end up regretting?
