Thanks for that, Terry;
I try to think once, twice, three times before I speak, or reply to a topic on a forum...what will the effect of my words be. I always want my input to be constructive, not reactive or destructive. My attitude is something like, "God, please keep a watch over my mouth and don't let me say something that would be harmful or hurtful or that I would regret later." There are times I have to say something to correct someone, and I try to make those comments in a spirit of love and helpfulness.
Unfortunately I don't always succeed.
