How do you get in trouble the most?


For me it is my mouth!  It seems that when I try not to say something wrong, it can be interpreted as something that can offend someone.  A lot of times when I think about how or what I said, it is not an interpretation but it actually was rude.  So if most of the time I offend people by what I say, I wonder how I can fix this?

When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.  Proverbs 10:19 ESV

Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.  Proverbs 17:28 ESV

Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.  Proverbs 29:20 ESV

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; James 1:19 ESV

For when dreams increase and words grow many, there is vanity; but God is the one you must fear. Ecclesiastes 5:7 ESV

Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.  Proverbs 21:23 ESV

Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!  Psalm 141:3 ESV

Do you control your words?  Have your words gotten you into trouble?  Do you need to pray for yourself or someone you know that needs to be careful with their words?  Ask God to set a guard over your mouth and to keep watch of your lips!
