water2

When a wise person speaks it is not noisy prattle that comes from their mouth.
Their words are well thought out;
 like deep waters they are pure and refreshing.
Wise words are life affirming;
freely given to all who will hear.

What do you hear most often; wise words or endless chatter?
What can you do to lessen the noisy prattle in life?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia

  1. With this noisy world, learned selective listening, as well as listening between the lines. Everybody wants to say something, I’d rather listen and speak when necessary. The same thing with listening to the word of God, I have to be silent in order to understand what the message he imparts. Thank you for these words.

    1. The world is a noisy place and as you say everybody wants to say something. It is worth the time and effort to find the quiet place within where we can silence the noise and hear the whispers of the Spirit.
