The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words. Proverbs, Chapter 15, Verse 26.
Now, I guess I might be able to convince some that my thoughts are always God focused and selfless, but God knows how I really am inside. Fortunately, He forgives me and helps to turn my selfish thoughts and resentments around to be more tolerant and forgiving of others.
Here are some related passages:
*The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. Proverbs, Chapter 15, verse 28.
*A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips: and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue. Proverbs, Chapter 17, verse 4.
*Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. Proverbs, Chapter 17, verse 28.
*A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish. Proverbs, Chapter 19, verse 9.
*A fool utterth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. Proverbs, Chapter 29, verse 11.
