Proverbs 21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
Wow!  Some verses in the Bible just jump out at you and kind of slap you upside the head.  I know a lot of people who seem to just open their mouth enough to change feet.  They are worse than those who say whatever is on their mind.  They say things without them ever going through their mind.  Not only do I know people like that sometimes I see one in the mirror because we can all be like that at times.
Thankfully as I have aged I have learned a little better to think before I speak.  I have learned that I don't have to say everything I think. Even now my mouth sometimes gets me in trouble but I am getting better at keeping it under control.
Someone once said that trying to un-say something is like trying to un-shoot a gun.  It just can't be done.  We can apologize and be truly sorry when we say hurtful things but we can never erase the pain that we cause.
If someone spreads a damaging false rumor it can do it's damage and destroy someone's reputation. No matter how sorry you might be for starting it you can not undo all the damage.
The tongue is mentioned frequently in the scriptures and of all the parts of our body  it seems that it can be the hardest to control and do the most damage.  Remember though, it is not just the ones who hear it that are damaged.  The one letting his tongue go wild will not escape unscathed either.
We have compiled an E-book of our devotionals in .pdf format. We will send them to you attached to an email.
