I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked are before me.
Yo dije: Guardaré mis caminos, para no pecar con mi lengua; guardaré mi boca como con mordaza, mientras el impío esté en mi presencia.
Our lips can speak us into bad situations. People will use our words against us, even when we mean right. Before we speak, praying is essential. Sometimes it is much better just to hold our words. If we let the Holy Spirit guide us, God can and will show us when to speak.
