Well I'm going to the dentist office today to get my teeth cleaned. Now what if that was all we had to do to make what comes out of our mouths cleaner and sweeter? It doesn't work that way though. It begins with our thoughts and then flies thru our open airway to the world.
Tact is the acute sensitivity to what is proper and appropriate in dealing with others, including the ability to speak or act without offending. My friend told me the other day that sometimes my blogs are hard in its subject matter. I said 'well I'm no Joel Olsteen', which means I don't just write what you want to hear. I hope my blogs come across as real and with applicable messages of benefit.
We can all use a little tact and still get our opinions out there. I think grace is key to that. I think if we give grace to others, our words will be more graceful. Yes my mind can be quite the smarty-pants but I have to be smarter than that to not let all that out.. ha.
