About To Ruin Your Witness? Take A Moment and Press Pause


In Law School you are taught that when prepping your client for trial or a deposition, have them pause for five to 10 seconds before speaking.

When I speak before crowds, I pause between salient points, between my thesis statement and the body of my speech. Sometimes to drive a point home, for dramatic purposes or to allow the point to stew in my audience. Why is this? To reflect on what you are about to say, before you say it!

What an important lesson we can take from this advice. Always guard your tongue. Take a moment to pause and think about what you are going to say before you say it. Is it to the Glory of God, or the entertainment of the devil!?! Again, think about your words!

God is listening!
