"Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything" (Proverbs 13:3 NLT).
Obedience Leads To Freedom
If you continue in His Word, the truth will set you free (Jn 8:31-32). This is especially true when you are a DOER of the truth; it will set you free (deliver you) in your daily walk (Gal 6:9-10, Jam 1:25). "You will reap" and "you will be blessed".
Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.

"So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls." (James 1:21 - NLT)
"For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." (1 Corinthians 1:18)
"The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of our God stands forever” (Isaiah 40:8).
The words of the wise are like cattle prods--painful but helpful. Their collected sayings are like a nail-studded stick with which a shepherd drives the sheep. - Ecclesiastes 12:11 (NLT)
