    I will pray that God will help you to control your speech so you will only say what he wants you to say.

      Everyone is responsible for his/ her actions and words. Think twice before you speak. There's a verse that says -- Whatever you do - in word or deed - do all to the glory of God..

        There's a poem I grew kinda fond of:

        If you are tempted to reveal
        A tale to you someone has told
        About another, make it pass,
        Before you speak, three gates of gold;
        These narrow gates. First, “Is it true?”
        Then, “Is it needful?” In your mind
        Give truthful answer. And the next
        Is last and narrowest, “Is it kind?”
        And if to reach your lips at last
        It passes through these gateways three,
        Then you may tell the tale, nor fear
        What the result of speech may be.
        by Beth Day (1835)

        God bless,
        William

          Amy Carmichael (55 years a Protestant missionary in India) said something remarkably similar. She probably got the idea for it from Beth Day's poem!

            India? That explains it:

            “Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:
            At the first gate, ask yourself “Is is true?”
            At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”
            At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
            ~ Rumi

            Rumi was from India. And I believe he lived in the 1200s. Haven't verified his date of birth and death.

              Hi Tony, I agree with Sue and with what 1 Corinthians 10:31 says (of course ;)), you need to pray and consider what you're about to say before you say it. As for what else the Bible has to say, this is the principle verse that I keep in mind for that very purpose, because if what you choose to say passes this test, I can't imagine that your words will ever get you into trouble again!

              Ephesians 4
              29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear.

              Praying for you!

              In Christ,
              David

              Matthew 7
              12 However you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

                Hi, Tony, I think you are a man with a good soul otherwise you would not ask us something like this. It did happen to me too, I am a good person and I try to help the other people, but the people around me don't treat me the same, I don't know why....but when I have difficulties, and a lot of problems they start to laugh about me or just treat me really ugly. In moments like this, I'm thinking just like you, I hope to say good things about them, and love these people. When we are hit, and we are down is very difficult to treat others with respect and love.
                I will pray for you, my friend to find the right way and the right words!

                  Those people are probably acting that way Because you Are trying to be a good person. Christian people aren't supposed to Have problems in the first place --supposedly-- So --when we Do -- it won't be Fun.

                    Father God I pray unto to you,to guide,Tony T,to not only speak well of others but have no hate in his heart for many mock your servants because they like to make a name for themselves,through such iniquity,and bring to reminder scripture as well to,Tony T,for him to reflect on to grasp why others treat him so dismally and that he has chosen correctly and wisely to ask for prayer for in the bible it is written"anger but sin not" so keep him from acting toward such hateful mocking,instead guide him to say good things or if necessary for him to not speak toward them,"for a foolish man speaketh his mind,a wiseman holdeth his peace",in Jesus's holy name I humbly pray,AMEN.
