To Speak Or Hold Your Tongue
It seems that our voice does matter. And to speak elegantly or not is a choice that we all have. There are some who do not have a voice and need someone to speak for them. The Bible points this out on so many instances. Jesus was sent here to speak for the Jews and Gentiles alike. He was so angered to see the priest and tax collectors gathered in the place of worship that he turned the tables over, giving a true shock and awe scene. But he was angry because the powers to be were putting rituals, money and status on worshiping and being accepted by God. Jesus could no longer hold his tongue. Ephesians 2:14 For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. So when our voice can be upheld for the greater good. And we can use our voices to teach and give away knowledge. We are doing what God wants us to do.
