Wisdom in What you Speak

Not everything that comes to mind has to be spoken. Some things that come to us are just for intercession. Find the good. Speak the good. Speak in alignment with the known will of God: The Bible. Look for, search after that which is positive and speak it. Try this: swallow before you respond or, perhaps, you might want to take a deep breath before you speak. In coming months, wisdom in what you speak will save you from what others are being defeated by.
Prov.13:3,Amp—“The one who guards his mouth [thinking before he speaks] protects his life; The one who opens his lips wide [and chatters without thinking] comes to ruin.”  Eph.4:29,Amp—“Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak].”
