The Week In Words ~ 11/29/10


This Week in Words is hosted by Barbara over at Stray Thoughts

Words that have touched my heart and soul this week are:

A neat note in the Start Bible I’ve been using says, “Consider the acronym THINK when speaking to others: T – is it true? H – is it helpful? I – is it inspiring? N – is it necessary? K – is it kind? Quite frankly, if we really apply this, it would stop a great deal of what we say in its tracks.”  This was a note regarding Colossians 4:6 “Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.”

A friend posted this on FB: “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”–C. S. Lewis

One of my fav verses I read: Psalm 27:13 “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

The Legacy of Home had this on their FB page:  “The choice of acquaintances is very important to the happiness of a mistress and her family. A gossiping acquaintance, who indulges in the scandal and ridicule of her neighbors, should be avoided as a pestilence.” – Mrs. Isabella Beeton, 1859

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

    Thanks so much for participating, Dawn!

    We do very much need to check our speech for those things and to become more Christlike and gracious with our words. That THINK acronym is a helpful reminder.
