Brethren, God gave us mouths that close and ears that don’t, that must tell us something. So, let’s learn to be good listeners (1 Samuel 15:22). Afterall your ears will never get you into trouble. Yes, its true words are free its but how you use them, that may cost you a lot. As Christians, part of maturing is realizing how many things don’t require your comment. So, don’t waste your time with explanations. Everything doesn’t need to be talked about (Proverbs 10:13-23). Since most people only hear and understand what they want to hear from their level of perception.
When you sit with wise people, the conversation is very different (Proverbs 13:20). Most time wise people are not always silent, but they know when to be. So, don’t waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all, Afterall a warm smile is the universal language of kindness. Just remember silence and smiles are two powerful tools. Smile is the way to solve many problems, and silence is the way to avoid many problems.
Always be yourself because an original is worth more than a copy. If you are faced with difficulties, tell someone how you feel, because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye, but regrets can last for a lifetime. Don’t worry what people say behind back Afterall, a tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of a sheep, because God is going to bless you in front of their faces.
Some people aren’t good at asking for help because they’re so used to being the helper. Throughout their life they’ve experienced an unbalanced give and take. so, their instinct is usually “I’ll figure it out on my own”. The self-reliance is all they’ve known. In short, A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want. From today learn to ask, and the Lord will make a way for you to receive (Matthew 7:7). Remember, a closed mouth sometimes is a closed destiny, So with wisdom, open your mouth wide, and the Lord will fill it with the right answer to your question (Psalm 81:10).
