Time to Be Quiet

A young mother was trying to impress upon her small children the need for silence at certain times. She taught them over and over, “There are three times when you need to be especially quiet: at church, in the library and when Daddy’s team is losing!”

Silence is a rare and precious commodity these days. Everyone seems to have an opinion on every subject. People raise their voices in an attempt to be heard. Commentators and politicians talk over one another. With so many people clamoring for our attention, sometimes it’s hard to even hear yourself think!

We need to get away from the noise and commotion in order to focus on God. Psalm 4:4 says, “Tremble and do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.”

That sounds like good advice to me!
