That which is on the heart comes to mind and that which is on the mind is spoken from the mouth. It is often said think before you speak, but perhaps we should remember to pause before we speak. Many thoughts travel through our minds constantly throughout the day. If we spoke every thing that came to mind we might find that we are not as knowledgeable, compassionate or in tune with our own environment, as we think we are. It doesn’t take much to display social inadequacy. Accept to agree or disagree, Jesus barely spoke a word in his defense before the Council or Pilate. While it didn’t save him from the cup he was about to drink (crucifixion), it did not prevent the manifestation of God’s glory. In the end, allow your wisdom to reflect the Word of God and the time we take to pause will allow the Holy Spirit to speak on our behalf and God’s glory will manifest in our lives also.
