"Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity."
(Proverbs 21:23, NIV)
Because thoughts become things and because what we say can also become a reality, we must carefully watch our words.

By then, I had used so many pointless words, and said so many things that would not only not bear good fruit in my life, but would possibly bear rotten fruit in my life. If you know where I’m coming from, raise your hand.
