Study to be Quiet

Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you?
let him shew out of a good conversation his works
with meekness of wisdom.

(~James 3:13)

Everything we do in life requires conscious thought. We decide to get out of bed. We decide to eat. We even decide what to say. It's easy to "speak without thinking" but in reality that's not possible. Every word that comes from our mouths is first formed in our minds. It's impossible to speak without first thinking--sometimes we just don't think long enough!

Jesus twice tell us (Mt. 12:34 and Lk. 6:45) that what is said comes from "the abundance of the heart," both good and evil. Did you catch that? The words that come from our mouths, whether they build up or tear down, reflect our hearts. Imagine a woman passing out bottled water at a shelter for Hurricane Katrina survivors. She's smiling, helping people find places to sit, getting blankets and giving water. Definitely a servant's heart, right? Then she speaks. She says things like, "You were a fool not to leave when you had the chance. It was stupid of you to stay. Only an idiot would jeopardize their life that way!" Her actions are caring but her conversation is not.

Our conversation, as well as our behavior, will show our knowledge of Christ. What does our speech say about us? James 1:19 tells us to be "swift to hear, slow to speak." We are to be in control of our mouths, not blurting out comments for the sake of filling silence. Those comments can be hurtful. My mother always told me, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." That takes a great deal of control sometimes!

Be swift to hear; listen to those around you. Be slow to speak; think of what you are going to say. If it's not Christ-like, consider the condition of your heart. What would Jesus say? James 3:17 tells us that wisdom from above is "first pure" (no lies), then "peaceable" (not causing strife or dissention), "gentle, and easy to be intreated" (considerate, submissive, willing to yield to reason), "full of mercy and good fruits" (compassionate), "without partiality" (unwavering, whole-hearted, straightforward,), and "without hypocrisy" (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity).

People "see" our knowledge of Christ when they witness our behavior and hear our words. We gain knowledge through studying the Word of God. We study the Word by first making a decision to pick up our Bibles. The decision is yours.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me (Ps. 51:10). Teach me what I ought to say (Lk.12:12). In the precious name of Jesus, I pray. Amen

I am SO glad I did decide to get this! I've only just glanced at it and am already amazed at what Weaver does cover. I knew it all began with the Bible, but I had no idea the Bible was covered so thoroughly! Can you tell I'm excited?! I'm sending it to Office Max right now to get it printed and bound so I can sit down with a hard copy and really look it over. Thank you again so much for all of the time you've put into this, it is simply amazing!
