- Do the teenagers really know what the acronyms they use mean? (wtf, fml, etc...)
- Do the parents know what their kids are saying?
- Is it intentional or unintentional? How can I get them to be intentional in speech?
- How can I inspire them to be more careful with the language they use?
- Foul acronyms are just as awful as foul language.
- If you wouldn't say it out loud to your parents, grandparents, teachers, or pastor...you shouldn't be texting/IMing/FBing it as an acronym.
- The fingers on a keyboard or cell phone are just as dangerous as the tongue.
James 1:26-27 "26If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. 27Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
Proverbs 12:18 "Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. "
