Silence is Golden

I’m a habitual chapstick user, so this is something I can relate to. I don’t know that I would ever be distracted enough to actually make the mistake, but sometimes I think it would be to the benefit of others if I did. I can honestly admit that there are times when I say some things that I shouldn’t and a little glue stick to keep my mouth shut would be in order. I’m probably more guilty of not saying anything when I should be speaking up. Instead of standing up for myself I just go with the flow. Discerning when to speak up and when to stay silent is a real challenge; often times it’s a matter of putting the feelings of others first. Easier said than done, I know, but it’s an ideal I strive to work towards.

This made me laugh out loud this morning! Thanks Sean for the message. Jesus was a great example of knowing when to speak and when to be silent. It’s a great personal thing to strive for.

What say you?
