7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.
Have you noticed that when it comes to politicians, there is a tendency to share a lot of information?
Have you noticed that when it comes to politicians, there is a tendency for that information to be used with just enough context to convince you of their stance.
Have you noticed that it happens on all sides of politics?
To be knowledgeable about what politicians say, in most cases it will take a lot of independent research. (In other words, be careful with politicians’ words.)
Do you know those people who have no secrets?
Do you know those people who tell you all the details, including those that you did not need to know … or even ever wanted to know?
Do you know those people who just talk and talk and talk … and talk … and rarely have anything of value to say?
To be friends with these people, you learn not to share certain information around them. (In other words, they tend to be gossips.)
Have you met those who rarely share anything?
Have you met those people who hold their tongue unless pressed to speak?
Have you met those who think talking with people is either a waste of time or simply a bother?
They may usually be trusted with a secret, but they also may be those who simply hold on to evidence. (In other words, the tend to be boring or paranoid.)
With so many people who may know many things about truth but twist it, it is hard to trust what anyone says.
With so many people who talk too much, it is hard to put faith in anyone.
With so many people unwilling to share or trust, it is hard to open up to anyone.
Christians should have the greatest reason for speaking and listening.
Christians share the words of hope, the words of Life, the Wisdom of God.
Christians share the knowledge of Jesus Christ with a dishonest, untrustworthy world to bring change to lives.
Those who never share the knowledge of Jesus Christ reveal their foolishness.
Those who share the knowledge of Jesus Christ demonstrate wisdom.
Dear Lord, do not let us walk in foolishness, to share information but never knowledge. Help us to walk in wisdom, to walk in Your love. Help us share the knowledge of the saving grace of Jesus Christ with our lost world.
