Before you speak … THINK! (An Acronym for the word Think)
Yes Before you speak … Think!
T – is s true? H – is it helpful? I – is it inspiring? N – is it necessary? K – is it kind?
Remember once we say what we say we cannot take it back. We can only seek forgiveness. The tongue is a powerful part of our body. It can also afflict the most damage. Check out these verses. The New King James has the word Tongue 150 times.
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.
But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
You need to read the whole context in these two above verses in James 3:1-12.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Be careful little tongue what you say. The acronym is true, we must think before we speak out load. Make sure what we say is true, helpful, inspiring, necessary and kind. Make sure it is Biblically correct. Remember when we teach and share the Gospel we are held accountable for what we share or don’t share about the Gospel.

Warning signs of suicide - The AFSP notes that people who take their own lives may speak about doing so prior to committing suicide. People should seek help if they or a loved one talks about feeling hopeless, having no reason to live or being a burden to others. People who speak of feeling trapped or feeling unbearable pain also may be exhibiting warning signs of suicide. #BeThe1To
