DAILY DEVO...think before you speak


I've heard it said over and over, "think before you speak" but yet too many times we do the exact opposite: we speak without thinking. 

Today's Scripture Reading takes us to Proverbs where we are reminded that a righteous person will study their answer before responding...

(Proverbs 15:28) "The heart of the righteous weighs its answers, but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil."

Some time ago I saw an acronym for the word "Think", I don't know who came up with it to give credit but I thought it was worthy to share today as we think about the words we speak. Before opening our mouth, let's ask ourselves the following 5 questions:

  1. Is it True?
  2. Is it Helpful?
  3. Is it Inspiring?  
  4. Is it Necessary?
  5. Is it it Kind?

T.H.I.N.K. - may we study the words that we speak and refrain from using any words that kill, steal or destroy. 

Think about it before you speak about it!
