The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? ~ Nicky Gumbel

I don’t know about you, but I can think of various occasions when I wish I had those three gatekeepers, and stopped myself from saying something which I shouldn’t have.

Sadly for many when they say untrue, unkind or unnecessary words, they can be fatal to their relationships. So be the gatekeeper of your own tongue, and think before you speak, making sure what you are about to say is not untrue, unkind or unnecessary, and if it is, don’t say it!

Don't speak
