    “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”

    “We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

    -- Mother Theresa

    Years ago an anonymous writer penned a short poem about the merits of measuring our words.

    A wise old owl sat in an oak;

    The more he saw the less he spoke;

    The less he spoke the more he heard;

    Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

    There is a connection between wisdom and limiting what we say. Proverbs 10:19 says, “In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.”

    We are wise to be careful about what we say or how much we say in certain situations. It makes sense to guard our words when we are angry. James urged his fellow believers, “Be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath” (James 1:19). Restraining our words can also show reverence for God. Solomon said, “God is in heaven, and you on earth; therefore let your words be few” (Eccl. 5:2). When others are grieving, our silent presence may help more than abundant expressions of sympathy: “No one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief was very great” (Job 2:13).

    Although there is a time to be quiet and a time to speak (Eccl. 3:7), choosing to speak less allows us to hear more.

    Dear Lord, please grant me wisdom to
    know when to speak and when to listen.
    I want to encourage others and to care
    for them as You have cared for me.

    Love this (and your entire post). I may need to print that out and frame it (and remember to pray it each day).
