In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise. Proverbs 10:19 New King James Version
Have you ever met those who take ten minutes to say what needs to be said in a minute? They put me to sleep.
I have found that those who make big promises deliver little. They promise much if you will do them a favour. When you have done as they ask they get amnesia and do not deliver on their promise. For these thief’s I wait until they are finished and then inform them I will do as they ask AFTER they have done what they promised to do (which most times they cannot). When they ask if I do not trust them they are politely informed that they came to me, they made the promise, are they not honourable enough to fulfill they vows first?
A fool talks much but says little, a wise man talks little but says much. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Have you ever been baited into a fight? You know, those who know how to get under your skin just to take delight in watching you go off like a rocket and then laugh at you. It has taken the Holy Spirit decades to teach me to stand there with my mouth shut. I just stare them in the eyes. They become very uncomfortable. Then I quote an appropriate Bible verse and explain what it means. It stabs them in their evil, wicked hearts and enrages them. The next time they try to bait me I just ask them if they want a repeat of what happened last time. They leave me alone.
Prayer: Please Jehovah bless me to know when to speak and when to stay silent. Bless me that when I speak my words are words of wisdom, gracefulness and meekfulness. I sincerely ask this in the name of the greatest orator Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
