The average man speaks 15,669 words a day, the average woman speaks 16,215 and the very talkative speaks 47,000 words a day. That’s a lot of words. But how much thought are you giving to your words? The Bible says in Matthew 12:36 that one day we will give an account to God for every careless word spoken. No one can tame the tongue but we have been given help in controlling what we say.
