Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.The reason it made me smile was because it reminded me of a quote from Abraham Lincoln that my Grandpa used to say often, which even though it's different, they are both recommending silence:
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.Hmmm....it only took a verse, a quote and a computer malfunction to get me to realize God was trying to tell me to just SHUT UP!! :) Okay, okay....I got it. But at least He provided me with something else fun to post about in the process, and gave me something to laugh at myself about.
So....whether you think me wise or foolish for holding my tongue, I can honestly say I know that God answered this prayer for me today (and I actually do have this quote on a little plaque in my house to remind me to pray this often!!):
Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth!
