If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom! (Job 13:5)
Go Job. You tell your friends what they need to hear! Although I think Job is also telling us now in 2017 this same thing. So many times it would be more wise to not speak than to speak.
When it comes to politics….we should shut up and listen more.
When it comes to religion….we should shut up and love more.
When it comes to parenthood….we should shut up and help more.
When it comes to social media….we should shut up. That’s it. Just shut it.
When it comes to a hurting friend….we should shut up and try to understand their struggles better.
When it comes to career advice….we should shut up and remember the other person is not us.
When it comes to telling anyone they are doing anything wrong….we should shut up and pray. Before words come out of our mouths, they should be run by God first so they can be infused with grace.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)
