Devotion: Listen more and speak little

15

James 1:19 “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters! Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.”

Matt 27:13-14 ” Then Pilate said to him, “Don’t you hear how many charges they are bringing against you?” But he did not answer even one accusation, so that the governor was quite amazed. “

Have faith.

Not every question should be answered. Dont think you can respond to each and everyone. To be a success there are times when being silent is the best answer you can give. This is not silence out of being rude but silence out of wisdom.

These are times when you know that if you speak then people will accuse you out of every word that comes from you. They won’t appreciate and accept what you have said. There are times when an answer would land you into trouble. Times when you know what to say but can’t say it in a particular environment. This is the best time to remain silent.

Even a fool when he remains silent in certain cases would be perceived as a wise man. So discern the time and circumstances and act accordingly. Not every time is suitable for your speech. Prov 17:28 “Even a fool who remains silent is considered wise, and the one who holds his tongue is deemed discerning. “

What you need more is listening. Learn to be quick to listen but consider if it is proper to speak or not. God gave us two ears but one mouth. So learn to be attentive when people are speaking and discern whether it is right to speak or not. Jam 1:19 “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters! Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.”

Too much talk can lead to or erro, so be careful with what and when you are speaking.Pro 10:19 “Too much talk leads to sin.Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.”

Prayer
Thank you Father for reminding me of the responsibility I have when uttering words. I will always discern the time and act wisely with my speech. Through the leading of your Spirit, I will discern the right time to speak or remain silent. In Jesus Name. Amen
