Honor favor #7: Speech

Here is one way you can make your family a place where honor is given away...

Demonstrating honor with our speech can be difficult. Words come out of our mouths before we know it. It's culturally acceptable to put others down, complain about leaders, and speak dishonorably about individuals. Families can be a good place to practice nurturing speech. How do you talk about a leader with whom you disagree? How do you tell a story that contains dishonoring information about a celebrity or sports figure? How do you speak about Grandma's weaknesses or an aunt or uncle who has some problems? Sometimes it's best to be quiet and resist the temptation to tell that juicy story. Other times, it's best to give people the benefit of the doubt and speak graciously to them. In any case, reflect honor in the way you speak about others.
