The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
I was taught that before we say something to others, we should ask our selves three questions.
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
Is it true?
This works especially well when we are angry at someone and we just want to unload on them. I hope this will help you as it has helped me many times to not speak reckless words. Having self control is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. God help us to bring healing rather than destruction with our words.
