I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY!
Blessed is the man who having nothing to say abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact.
This thought came to my mind earlier this afternoon while on the way to picking my son from school. If you’ve been following my blog here you’ll notice I haven’t made any post in about a week now. It’s not for want of something to say but of saying something that will be a blessing to my readers. I’ve always believed that you should talk only when you have something to say, not just because you have to say something!
I think in these days and with various social media platforms – facebook, twitter, myspace etc – we have to re-learn how not to talk unless there is something important or beneficial to say. We have to learn afresh to resist the urge to talk for talking sake. We should speak to bless lives. The Scriptures put it this way: “Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt…. (something) good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” [Colossians 4:6a; Ephesians 4:29b]
If you’re feeling me on this, you might also enjoy this post I wrote earlier in the year, TURN OFF THE TAP! YOU WILL SUCCEED!
