STOP AND THINK – I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. (Maya Angelou, African-American poet)
We should be careful about what we say to people. Did we say the right thing? Were we critical? Did we make a joke at somebody’s expense? It’s important to remember that it’s not merely the words we use, but the tone and accompanying body language. The question always is how we made someone else feel. Aim to make them feel good.
Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect. (James 3:2)
