Sins of the Tongue: Biblical Teaching to Govern Our Speech

"He that lives not by rule, lives not at all" has grown into a proverb, yet many have no settled plan and no fixed principles, They are at sea without a compass, and know not whither they go, but are borne along with every wind and current. This may be an easy mode of life, but can it be safe? Blinded by self-love, such may hope that all is well, but is there cause for such expectations? It may be as mischievous to have no principles as bad ones. A rule not followed is a mere notion, and governs no one.
