This scripture tells us that we need to think before we speak. This literally means that we need to spend a few seconds in our heads thinking before uttering something hurtful or thoughtless. It is better to remain quiet than to blurt out something foolish. Taming the tongue in this manner is essential because you can never take back something that you say in anger or haste, although you may have to spend the rest of your life apologizing for it.
