GOD PAUSE: Good morning. Just a few minutes ago I was reading Proverbs 17:29 that says “Even a fool when he holds his peace is counted wise. And he that shuts his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.” You may have even heard it said that it’s best to keep your mouth shut and people to think you’re a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt. Boy, have I gotten into deep weeds by opening my mouth when I should have kept it shut. So Lord, help me and my friend to be wise with our mouths. May we be silent when that’s the best route to take. And when we do say something, let it be the right time and in the right way. Amen.
