Listen to today's passage 

Among the finds in today’s reading are several Proverbs related to our speech. Consider some of these:

Verse 18b—Whoever spreads slander is a fool
Verse 19—When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.
Verse 20—The tongue of the righteous is choice silver…
Verse 21—The lips of the righteous nourish many…
Verse 31—The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but a perverse tongue will be cut out.
Verse 32—The lips of the righteous know what is fitting…

Ask the Holy Spirit to be the gatekeeper of your mouth. Think of the favor that you will have with God and others.
