"Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from deceitful speech."
To enjoy life we must refrain from speaking evil and keep our lips from lying.
Peter quotes Psalm 34:12-16a (see memory verse below) to confirm that God's blessing rests on those who practices righteousness.
Why is speech so important? Consider the following verse:
"Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body." - James 3:5-6a
