Proverbs 10:19 "When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise."
Proverbs 11:13 "He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy conceals a matter."
Proverbs 12:18 "There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing."
Proverbs 15:18 "A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but the slow to anger pacifies contention."
Proverbs 17:9 "He who covers transgression seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates intimate friends."
Proverbs 15:28 "The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things."
All these verses have led me to "check" my heart. I want to be a person who is wise and righteous and soothes instead of inflames. I want all the words out of my mouth to bring life and healing. I don't want to be the one sinking ships if you know what I mean. So, no matter what "stuff" is going on, I want to not be moved. To any I have hurt, I repent. I want the meditations of my heart and the words from my lips to be pleasing to the Lord.
