"Discretion of speech is better than eloquence with words." Today's post from Our Daily Bread is particularly powerful.
One of the toughest passages of Scripture to live is (at least it is for me): "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him" (Colossians 3:17).
Silence may be more than golden; it may be the very word God wants us to speak.
Father, give the Holy Spirit total access to my mind, body, and tongue, so that everything I do, say, and am glorifies You and expresses my thanks for the gift of new life that comes from Jesus Christ alone. Amen
