In the multitude of words, sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.
This verse is clear and to the point, and could be used as a filter before we open our mouths.
If you often find yourself “in a multitude of words,” do a quick check to be sure you are pleasing the Father in what you are saying. If your words are untruthful, mean spirited, or damaging to someone else, then the second part of this verse should be implemented – restraint. If you have to question whether or not you should say it, then you probably shouldn’t. If you have to ask forgiveness after you say it, then you should probably keep it to yourself.
It reminds me of a song I learned in Sunday School. “Oh be careful little lips what you say. For the Father up above is looking down in love, so be careful little lips what you say.”
