"New research has found that 64 percent of employers think less of employees who swear at work and 57 percent said they would be less likely to promote a worker who swears in the office.A majority of bosses said that cursing at work brought an employee's professionalism, control, maturity and intelligenceinto question."

Imagine that! People are coming to realize that lacking control of one's mouth reflects a lack of control elsewhere. "For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body" (James 3:2).
