The wise don’t engage in empty chatter. What good are such words?
Job 15:3 NLT
You should make it a must to avoid folly
Why should you find yourself in unnecessary discussions, Apostle Paul warned against this to Timothy
Don’t let them waste their time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don’t help people live a life of faith in God.
1 Timothy 1:4 NLT
Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly.
1 Timothy 4:7 NLT
Being godly is our priority. To be fully submerged in the word of God is our main goal. Many have turned away from Faith after engaging in useless talk .
Many have found themselves in sin after engaging in useless chatter. For you need to understand that the church is for everyone sinners too so to have a personal relationship with God you need to move from the crowd and have time alone with God he gives wisdom to whoever asks earnestly.
Jesus is our example , whenever he had pressing issues he would prefer the wilderness to have time alone with God,he understood that certain discussions should be personal with God. It is in human nature to give answers to topics they don’t understand ,so wisdom is in knowing what to discuss with your friends and what not to tell them at all.
Adam’s downfall was due to the fact that Eve discussed what God commanded to Adam with the devil. Satan knew Eve was Adam’s weakness , derailing Eve was surely going to destroy Adam. Eve did not have a right to give an answer to the snake ,the Command was given to Adam ,so why on earth did Eve respond???
Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Lest you also be like him.
Proverbs 26:4 NKJV
Satan is a great manipulator ,many have been talked out of their dreams,some have been talked out of their marriages ,The devil is roaming around seeking who to destroy ,.Avoid vanity ,resist the devil I always suggest Joseph’s way of dealing with temptation Joseph ran away from Pharaoh’s wife ..
Rise above mediocre don’t let people talk you out of your dreams, God created us for a purpose ,the devil knows what you are capable of he is always seeking ways to reduce you to his level.
Dead flies putrefy the perfumer’s ointment, And cause it to give off a foul odor; So does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor.
Ecclesiastes 10:1 NKJV
Choose Wisdom ,stay away from useless talk!!
