The T H I N K Method

Continuing on the same theme as yesterday, what we say to others and about others could be detrimental to our friendships and relationships. Many of these were shattered and broken because we did not keep a secret, or because we spread rumors or gossiped about things, news and information that was not correct or true. So I always suggest this method to my parishioners, and invariably they always come back to ask me for a copy or what the five words are. It is so true, we can hurt so many people by what we say without first thinking - as the story of Socrates showed us yesterday. So, never say anything about others unless it is True, Helpful, Inspiring (or Important,) Necessary and Kind - a perfect acronym for the word THINK. That’s write, think about it, before you say it!
