Jason Hardin has a helpful challenge drawn from Proverbs 25:11. He offers simple questions to ask so that we might speak the right words at the right time.
- “Is what I am about to say appropriate?”
- “Does it fit the audience?”
- “Does it fit the situation?”
- “Does it fit the character of the One in whose footsteps I’m walking?”
- “If He were physically sitting right next to me, would these words still be the ‘right’ words?”
