Memorise: “Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.” – Proverbs 17:28

Read: Proverbs 17:27-28

27 He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding has a cool spirit.

28 Even a fool when he holds his peace is considered wise; when he closes his lips he is esteemed a man of understanding.

Bible In One Year: Numbers 7, Mark 4:21-41


Asides giving your parents joy, a wise fellow is known by his or her ability to control the tongue. Proverbs 10:19 says

“In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.”

A talkative is never far from sin. A person that does not have control over his tongue reveals his secret to his enemies without even realizing it.

Ask yourself, why do I talk too much? Some people talk because the like noise; they cannot stay quiet. Some talk in order to impress the person they are with, some talk to show that they are arguers, some talk to show how current they are. When you identify the reason why you talk too much, put a control over your tongue whenever you are beginning to feel the need to talk. When you are unavoidably in the midst of lousy people, let them say all they want to say without you saying a word, when you leave, leave. When you do that, they will begin to suspect you and will not come around you to gossip or talk aimlessly anymore.

Action Point:

Being silent saves you from a lot of trouble and sins.

Hymn 16

  1. Christian, seek not yet repose
    Hear thy gracious Savior say;
    Thou art in the midst of foes:
    Watch and pray.
  2. Principalities and power
    Mustering their unseen array
    Wait for the unguarded hours:
    Watch and pray
  3. Gird the heavenly armor on,
    Wear it ever night and day;
    Ambushed lies the evil one:
    Watch and pray.
  4. Hear the victors who o’ercame,
    Still they mark each warrior’s way;
    All with one sweet voice exclaim,
    Watch and pray.
  5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
    Him thou loves to obey;
    Hide within thy heart His word:
    Watch and pray.
  6. Watch, as if on that alone
    Hung the issue of the day;
    Pray, that help may be sent down:
    Watch and pray.
