We are all familiar with Proverbs 18:21 which tells us there is life and death in the power of our words.  We have heard message after message about speaking the right words over what we are believing God for.  That is a necessary thing to do if we are going to see the promises of God manifest  – we must speak life over them.  However, that is not the only place speaking life is vital.

I read something today that captured my heart.  It said; before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.  1.  Is it true?  2.  Is it necessary?  3.  Is it kind?

Is it true?  Don’t spread things about people that you don’t know to be truth.  And don’t believe everything you hear about someone – ask God to show you their heart.
