Its amazing how much we lose when we talk. Its even more amazing how ignorant we are of this fact. We get so engrossed in saying which is an outlet that we do less of the other things which are meant to fill us…reading,meditation and…listening! Yes! Listening.
Are you always in a hurry to talk(or perhaps you call it sharing)? Do you always feel you have something to say and can’t go another minute without saying it? Then you’re in danger of dissipation.
If you talk more than you think,preach more than you study,teach more than you read…there is a problem! Little wonder we’re so shallow.
Perhaps this was the issue behind the instruction to the Israelites to keep mute when marching round Jericho.
Don’t lose the potency of your life….watch your tongue.
