The N.I.C.E. Tongue

Do you agree with me that talking too much, and too carelesslessly, can be dangerous ? Jesus agrees, too.

He tells us in Matthew 12:36, that one day we will give an account of every idle word we have spoken.

These are no idle words !

It is particularly challenging to be in control of our speech, since the human tongue is a rascal, and very difficult to control. (James 1:26).

And so, R.J. and I try to follow the principle of The N.I.C.E. Tongue. We try to make sure our speech falls into the following categories:

N- necessary speech

I- informative speech

C- comforting, consoling or comical speech

E – encouraging words.

Let us ask for the grace to use words that uplift others and please the Lord.
