When to be Silent..??

Be silent – in the heat of anger

Be silent – when you don’t have all the facts

Be silent – when you haven’t verified the facts

Be silent – if your words will offend a weaker person

Be silent – when it is time to listen

Be silent – when you are tempted to make light of holy things

Be silent – when you are tempted to joke about sin

Be silent – if you would be ashamed of your word later

Be silent – if your words would convey the wrong impression

Be silent – if the issue is none of your business

Be silent – when you are tempted to tell an outright lie

Be silent – if your words will damage someone else’s reputation

Be silent – if your words will damage a friendship

Be silent – when you are feeling critical

Be silent – if you can’t say it without screaming

Be silent – if your words will be a poor reflection of your friends and family

Be silent – if you may have to eat your words later

Be silent – if you have already said it more than one time

Be silent – when you are tempted to flatter a wicked person

Be silent – when you are supposed to be working instead

  1. A very good post about the importance of silence in our lives…we are tempted to break it so often, it’s necessary though some times but many a time we can control ourselves. Thank you for sharing 🙂
