"The entrance of thy words giveth light (Psalm 119:130)."

Guard Your Mouth

"Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them (Ephesians 4:29 NLT)."

"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 NIV)."

Whereever you are in life, there are others around you that are affected by how you talk. This includes your co-workers, family, friends—actually everyone.

As Christians, we are called upon to build others up, not tear them down. And this applies especially to parents.

Yelling at others, sarcasm, derogatory comments, gossip etc. are all sins. These can result in spiritual footholds that can cause suffering for years on end. Sometimes for a lifetime.

Guard your mouth. It's a command from God. It will improve your relationships. It will prevent you unnecessary suffering since we all end up reaping what we sow. And it will make judgement day a whole lot easier.
