Think Before You Speak...Tame Your Tongue

What you say & what you don' say are both important. Proper speech is not only saying the right words at the right time, but it is also controlling your desire to say what you shouldn't 

Examples of an untamed tongue including gossiping, putting others down, bragging, manipulating, false teaching, exaggerating, complaining, flattering, and lying. Before you speak, ask: "Is what I want to say true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?"

I think we all can learn from this. I'm sure we've wither bragged, complained & other things that weren't Godly. We need to be mindful of what we say. Not to impress others, but show others that we are honest & can be trustworthy. 


  1. Great blog Ash! Super important... I also had to learn to think before I talk, with God's help, I am doing much better!


  2. Yes, it takes time. If we know better, we'll do better :)
