If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. (Betty Eadie, American author)

Eadie continues: “If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative.” In the Bible. James reminds us that “. . . no one can tame the tongue.” It’s compared to a ship’s rudder or a horse’s bridle that is used to control a large ship or horse. To avoid verbal damage, we must ask God to help us control our tongues (words).

Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. (Ephesians 4:29)
