O LORD: keep watch over the door of my lips.”

Psalm 141:3 “Set a guard over my mouth, 479808_10151964551065268_1216832074_n

Before speaking, ask yourself the following questions.

T       is it true
H      is it helpful
I        is it inspiring
N      is it necessary
K      is it kind

Think before you speak. Use the five to one ratio when correcting – five positive remarks to one negative comment. The harder the truth, the more love we should use in saying it. It is our responsibility to use our words to train and instruct our family about the daily things in life, but more importantly, to instruct them about the eternal things. We are very concerned about providing for our children when we need to be more concerned about caring for our children. To care for our children, we must disciple them by speaking words of truth. Guard your tongue.
