Mike's Minute

By Mike Kelley

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4:29

A preacher announced that he was leaving the congregation to work with another church. He was standing at the door after worship to greet people, as preachers often do. An elderly lady approached him. Her eyes swimming with tears, she said, "Oh, preacher, I'm so sorry you have decided to leave. Things will never be the same again."

The preacher was flattered. Taking her hands in his, he replied with as much kindness as possible, "Bless you, dear sister, but I'm sure God will send you a preacher even better than me." She choked back a sob as she said, "That's what they always say, but they keep getting worse and worse."

May I remind you that people with tact have less to retract? Let's follow that old but timeless advice... "Think before you speak."

Before speaking, ask yourself if what you are thinking of saying aligns with the following qualities. Is what you are thinking:

Old advice? Yes. But it would do a world of good AND the world some good if more of us would follow it.
