Pastor Chappell of Lancaster Baptist Church recently gave the following good counsel regarding that.

  • When you want to speak before you know the whole matter  He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.—Proverbs 18:13
  • When you could listen and glean wisdom   Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.—Proverbs 22:17
  • When you want to gossip   The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.—Proverbs 26:22
  • When you are angry    A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.—Proverbs 15:1
  • When you haven’t taken the time to listen    Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him.—Proverbs 29:20
  • When you don’t have anything helpful to say    He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.—Proverbs 17:27

Practice of those simple disciplines would save us and others from a lot of the repercussions and troubles our tongues are prone to produce.
