Tactful or Offensive by Joe Barnett
The words of a wise person are gracious. Eccl. 10:12
The manager of the shoe department at my nearby Dillard’s advises salespeople: “Never tell a lady, your foot is too big for this shoe; instead, tell her, I’m sorry, but this shoe is just a little too small for you.” The first comment might be offensive; the second is tactful.
Considerate people are careful to maintain cordial relationships and have the good sense to avoid antagonistic remarks.
Do you know anyone who lacks tact? A name popped into your mind before I finished writing this sentence. Some offenders pass it off with the flip phrase, “I’m just plain spoken.” Proverbs has a name for that person: “Fool” (Proverbs 18:6, 7; 20:3; 29:20).
Tactful individuals promote harmony, not friction: “The tongue of the wise brings healing” (Proverbs 12:18). “How good is a timely word” (Proverbs 15:23).
The primary requirement for being tactful is thinking before speaking.

Allen was preaching in Conroe this past Wednesday night at the Longmire congregation. Ruby and Dee Meadors worship there and send their greetings to Broadway. The trip was eventful in that Allen experienced one of TX DOT’s frequent road closures before arriving back in Houston.
Tonight he goes to Stafford (his second home congregation) to preach.
There are a few copies of Mariana Long’s report from her Ireland Mission trip at the back of the auditorium. Please read and then share it with someone else.
