The Power of SILENCE

Knowing when to speak and when to keep quiet is priceless. So many people have paid the ultimate price for not keeping their mouths shut; they lost their lives. The power of life and death is in the tongue. In the bible, James chapter 3, says the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity and it defiles the whole body. 3:7-8 "For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of the things of the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man can tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison." Now my main point is the evil that rules in our lives. It's uncontrollable, the darkness makes a man weak and blind. A life filled with sin is a life that's out of control. Man can control a horse by putting a bit in its mouth. But can not exercise SELF-CONTROL. Then it says that the tongue is full of deadly poison, speaking about physical harm a FALSE WITNESS cause. People have died because of the lies someone told. Can you hold your peace while someone is lying on you? It is our human nature that causes our defense to kick in. The power of silence is not a sign of weakness. It is the beginning of self-control. The power of life and death is in the tongue; you can lie your way into hell or you can confess your sins and go to heaven.
