When Saying the Truth Kills You

Guard your mouth

What more to say? The title summarizes it.

“Guard your mouth.” It’s from the Bible but I’ve heard it from one of my colleagues. Less talk, less mistake.

Psalm 141:3
Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

Proverbs 12:13
Evildoers are trapped by their sinful talk, and so the innocent escape trouble.

Proverbs 13:3
Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.

Proverbs 18:21
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
