PROVERBS 17:28

EVEN A FOOL IS COUNTED WISE WHEN HE HOLDS HIS PEACE; WHEN HE SHUTS HIS LIPS HE IS CONSIDERED PERCEPTIVE.

 

THIS IS SO TRUE!

TOO QUICK TO SPOUT OFF? IN TOO MUCH OF A HURRY TO “HAVE YOUR SAY”? ALWAYS NEEDING TO MAKE YOUR OPINION KNOWN?

TRUE FOR MANY OF US. AND HOW OFTEN WE “BLOW IT” WHEN WE SPEAK BEFORE THINKING . . .. .  AND/OR PRAYING.

 

WISE MOTTO IS TO “STOP, THINK, & PRAY” BEFORE SPEAKING. HOLD OUR PEACE UNLESS THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES US THE GO-AHEAD.

*FOR ANYONE WISHING TO PURSUE SUPPLEMENTARY STUDY ON THIS TOPIC, I RECOMMEND ECCL.5:1-7
