Hold the Tongue

Body language, Volume and Tone of the Voice and the choice of words can make or break a relationship, proposition or worst, a contract. In a fury and a hurry, in a fit of anger a sarcasm or harsh word is blurted. What said cannot be unsaid. The events that follows may hurt many others inadvertently. Many a times, one should hold the tongue and take a deep breath. Disappointed as one statement said by one, has led to a loss of income of another.

Better be frustrated for holding the tongue, than hurting the feelings and destroy the friendship/relationship which in many cases might not be repairable nor forgettable. Life is full of ups and downs. Just be strong to ride through and come out stronger and wiser.

But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
