The tongue is a useful part of the body and at the same time deadly. It can bring life or death depending on how we make use of it.
To keep our tongue means to be mindful of what we say, at a particular time, in a particular place and to a particular person. What we tell Mr A that earn us praise from him may bring punishment, rebuke or destruction if we say it to Mr B.
The Bible says, he that keeps his tongue keeps his life but whosoever opens his mouth wide shall have destruction.
