Be Quiet. Lesson 15 of 40

I love to talk. There is no denying that. I’m that person who breaks the awkward silence in the room and strike up conversation with strangers.  I love to make people feel more at ease by talking to them.  While this is sometimes a good thing, I am learning that there are times in which I just need to be quiet.

 Be quiet when my advice, as good as it may be, is not wanted.

Be quiet when I am tempted to prove how much knowledge I have and be a ‘know it all.’

Be quiet when anger is stirring within me and my harsh words will only add fuel to the fire.

Be quiet when I am tempted to prove my point by out-talking the other person, so I can win the argument.

Be quiet when I am in God’s presence and give Him a chance to speak to me.

Yes, I am finding great value in knowing when to be quiet.  How about you?  Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you. By the way,  I am having problems uploading my YouTube videos.  I will post it once the problem gets resolved.

Be Blessed,


Proverbs 10:19 Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.

Proverbs 17:28  Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent.

James 1:19 Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.
