Ephesians 4:29

Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. NKJV
Lately it's been brought to my attention that I have a bad habit of putting in my extra two cents when others are trying to work out a problem between themselves and I have no place in the conversation, giving additional advice when it is not wanted. I need to be mindful of what comes out of my mouth before joining discussions that may not involve me; more often than not I probably need to stay out entirely and allow others to work things out amongst themselves. When I do feel a need to get involved, I also NEED to seek guidance in prayer, and maybe do nothing more than pray with them for guidance.

Now to Him who is able to keep us from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
