What's going on this week"


There are a lot of things in life that we can not control so we have to work hard at controlling ourselves.

This week we are talking about how to to control our mouths. Sometimes this is a difficult thing to do. In world where freedom of speech is such an important part of our culture, it is also important to have wisdom when we speak.

Our words have power. Knowing how and when to say things are just as important (if not more important) as what we say. If we just THINK before for we speak, we could avoid a lot of possible problems.

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

So before we start talking let's take second and THINK first. I am sure is will save us many future troubles.
