Measured Words

Do you give thought before you speak?
Sometimes words can bring offense.
Careful answers are worth gold,
Often saving some "expense".

Unwise words can bring high cost...
Confusion, doubt or even pain.
But measured words will show respect
And good will likely ascertain.

"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer."
Psalms 19:14 KJV
