Taming the Tongue: T.H.I.N.K Before You Speak

I enjoyed Rodney Duncan's sermon in church last week on taming the tongue. Speaking from the book of James, he pointed out that the tongue has the power to:
1. Direct
2. Destroy
3. Delight

And finally he gave an acronym of T.H.I.N.K. We need to THINK before speak.

T - Is it True?
H - Is it Helpful?
I - Is it Inspiring?
N - Is it Necessary?
K - Is it Kind?

I myself have made many mistakes in the past before on words that I knew I should not have spoken. Once you have let your words out, there is no way you can retract them back. This acronym T.H.I.N.K is going to be really helpful to me. Everybody needs a little reminder from time to time.
