Better To Be Silent… – June 26, 2019

2 Kings 9.14-10.31; Acts 17.1-34; Psalm 144.1-15; Proverbs 17.27-28

…and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Sounds much like our proverb for today, doesn’t it? Too often people spend much of their time talking and not enough time listening. How can your silence be used to demonstrate wisdom, versus your speaking revealing foolishness?

Questions:

In what ways does wickedness prevent peace from happening?

Does discussing the latest ideas translate into following them? How can our discussions lead to a better sense of following Jesus?

Describe the picture you see here in the psalm when the writer says “open the heavens and come down.”

Who is that person in your life that has very few words to say, yet the words he or she does say are so, so powerful? How can you be more like this person?
