Watch Your Words Diligently
Words have great power, to bless or to wound. When you speak negatively, you damage others as well as yourself. Be quick to listen and slow to speak and slow to become angry. Ask God to help you whenever you speak to people. If they are silent pray before speaking to them. If they are talking pray before responding. In this way, your speaking comes under the control of God's spirit. Let positive speech patterns replace your negative ones.
