STOP AND THINK – A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation. (Mark Twain, American author and humorist)
When you hear someone repeatedly use inappropriate language (curses, suggestive innuendo, etc.), don’t you sometimes wonder what that person is really like? Is their thought-life cluttered with such trash? Twain might be giving us a good clue in evaluating someone’s true self, their character. Keep your mind clean and you won’t have to clean up your mouth.
Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check. (James 3:2)
