|A reflected theme of the author Kathyg's "A Penny For Your Thoughts." Which you should read first and foremost.|
"Cash My Thoughts!" Everything we do has its individual stake. When we are silent we should be heard. When we are heard, we shouldn't have been listened to. Though the tongue is only a small part of the body it does great damage. The tongue is a "fire" the Great Book teaches us. "It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing." (James 3:5 - 10). Don't get me wrong, the tongue has the potential to do good as well as harm. Though reckless words pierce like a sword, the tongue of the wise brings healing. (Proverbs 12:18). So basically, sinners spit words of ashes, while wise men breath words to endure forever. Why speak when all of your words will fall to the ground on the account of lies? A lie does not have to insult or offend to be further from the truth. It merely is anything apart from honesty. Whether it be to justify an action, or false self imagery. See, so silence sometimes is in the best interest of our matters. Tweet
