From Ladies Against Feminism – Godly Speech
People say,” I always say what I think,” as if that is a good quality, that is a terrible quality. I wouldn’t admit it to anybody. In fact, I would confess it before God. And also, somebody who always speaks what is on his mind and on his emotions is somebody who is a slave to his emotions. I feel sorry for the poor person. Even if what you say is right, even if what you say is true, there are sometimes, you’re just going to keep your mouth closed.
You’re going to ask yourself, now how does this good or right statement, how is it going to effect this person, the words that I use. Is this the opportune time to tell this person the truth?
I’m not telling you to compromise. I’m not telling you ever to compromise or negotiate with the truth, but I am saying, think. We must think, I’m telling myself as well as you, we must think before we speak. What is the best way to express this, so that this person knows what is on my heart? Is this person ready to hear what I have to say?
