Fourteen benefits of Spirit led restraint in our speech. Many problems could be avoided if we learn how to restrain our lips using discretion, tract and Spirit-led self-control. Prevention is better than any cure.
The Benefits of Restraint (James 1:19-21)
Solomon wrote, "Where there are many words, trangressions are unavoidable but he who restrains his lips is wise."
James wrote, "Let everyone be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger." (James 1:19)
