Watch your Words

His eyes, usually bright, were clouded. I listened. I saw how “the words of the reckless pierce like swords (Proverbs 12:18).”

Those of us who pray must be very careful what we say. It is not right for blessing and cursing to come out of the same mouth (from James 3:10).

If you struggle to keep your words kind and pure, pray this: “Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips (Psalm 141:3).”
