Watch what you say.

Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭13‬:‭3‬ NLT)‬‬‬‬‬‬
You have not mastered self-control if you do not control what you say. Words can cut and destroy. James recognized this truth when he stated, “The tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body” (James 3:6). If you want to be self-controlled, begin with your tongue. Stop and think before you react or speak. If you can control this small but powerful member, you can control the rest of your body. (See the chart.) 
As I was pondering this scripture this question came to mind. 
How do people judge or box us? How do they make up their mind who and what we are? If we never say or do anything then they can’t form a opinion. Can we go through life not saying or doing anything? No you can’t. 
Know I have said this before I am in Sales. On the Sales floor we meet people daily. We have have around 45s to a minute to create a impression. People would rather deal with people they like and impress them. How do you do that? Yes by communicating and that is done by the way, you look, behave and speak. Body language and what you say in those opening seconded are key. 
Who more important to impress upon than your love ones, family and friends? Then the rest of the world you touch.
Amazing again the Bible a guide to our daily life.
Guard your mouth around every one. The fruits from that will be plenty full. And your surroundings will be happy. Just like in sales rather try impress upon people than say the wrongs things. Think before you speak.
Be God’s shepherd in what you say and do.
“Lord I pray for smart words to Glorify you. In Jesus name. Amen”
