Uh-Oh

It seems like lately I want to say everything I am thinking. This most of the time is not a good thing. Today as I was reading my Bible these verses really convicted me.

Ephesians 4:2-3
2. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
3. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Ephesians 4: 29-32

4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
4:30
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
4:31
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.
4:32
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Would I have anything to say if I followed these verses. Maybe I should be talking a lot less.
