Conclusion
Tongue Control
Once a young man came to that great philosopher Socrates to be
instructed in oratory. The moment the young man was introduced he
began to talk, and there was an incessant stream for some time. When
Socrates could get in a word, he said, "Young man, I will have to charge
you a double fee." "A double fee, why is that?" The old sage replied, "I
will have to teach you two lessons. First, how to hold your tongue, and
then how to use it." What an art for all of us to learn, especially for
Christians.
 A Tongue's Soliloquy
 I am your tongue! I am an important fellow. The Bible mentions me about
 215 times (Pro.18:21; Pro.21:23, etc.). When I speak kind, thoughtful and
 true words, there is happiness; when I speak mean, untrue, angry or
 complaining words, there is trouble.

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may
know how ye ought to answer every man – Col.4:5
