Proverbial kick in the butt

August 18, 2008

Just in doing my daily Bible reading, hitting the Proverb of the day, God provided a much needed reminder.

Get this… I talk too much. I think my opinion matters, because, hey, it’s mine!

Proverbs 18.2 says,

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.

That was a quick follow up to yesterday, when God told me to shut up in 17.27 and 28

Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding. Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.

Too often, I want to be heard. I want my opinion to matter. I want to sound intelligent… and I could… if I would just shut up.
