Silence Is Golden

There is a story told about a man who decided to become a monk. He joined a monastery that required its members to take a vow of silence. At the end of each year’s service this man would be allowed to say two words.

After the first year the man was allowed to speak his two words. He said, “Bed hard.”

After his second year of living at the monastery the man uttered these two words—“Food bad.”

At the end of his third year, the frustrated monk said, “I quit!”

His supervisor replied, “I’m not surprised. Ever since you got here you’ve done nothing but complain.”

“Do everything without grumbling…”—Philippians 2:14.
