Engage heart and head first

And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. In the same way, the tongue…James 3:4-5

Spoken words can change the course of a relationship. Before speaking it’s a good idea to ask:

“Should I say this?”

“How should I say this?”

“Should I say it now?”

“Where is saying this going to take us?”

Wrong words cannot be unsaid but better words can restore a relationship to a better course even if its not the direction it was originally taking.

Lord help my heart and head to engage before I speak.
