Watch Your Words

"How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

"Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth;
keep the door of my lips."
(Psalm 141:3)

"Let the words of my mouth, and the mediation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my Redeemer."
(Psalm 19:14)

“If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this; to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:26, 27NIV


Keep a watch on your words, my darlings,
For words are wonderful things;
They are sweet, like the bees' fresh honey,
Like the bees, they have terrible stings.

They can bless like the warm, glad sunshine,
And brighten a lonely life;
They can cut, in the strife of anger,
Like an open, two-edged knife.

May peace guard your lives, and ever
From the time of your early youth,
May the words that you daily utter
Be the words of beautiful truth.
