The Puritans get it right

How's this for a convicting prayer in light of how much time we all spend with others and online.  It comes from The Valley of Vision:

May I scandazlie none by my temper and conduct,
but recommend and endear Christ to all around,
bestow good on everyone as circumstances permit,
and decline no opportunity of usefulness

I'd say that for a homebody like myself who engages in online dialogue with people, these words are an especially good reminder.  How often do we scandalize others by our outrageous and harsh words?  I struggle with having a tongue that longs to be busier than necessary.  Lord, grant me a guard over mind and mouth.
