James 3:13 “Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge amoung you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.”
A wise man bridles his tongue. Use it to lift up, encourage, and enlighten others not to brag, manipulate, complain, flatter or lie. Teachers have a high responsibility as what they say or don’t say affects many. Proper speach is not only saying the rght words at the right time, but controlling our desire to say what we shouldn’t.
So before we speak we should ask ourselves:. Is it true; is it necessary; is it kind. Pray for the help of the Holy spirit in this area so we will speak words that please God.
