We'll jump back into the Proverbs for a little bit. Today, we study Proverb 17. The Proverb could be sublabeled the "Better ... than" Proverb. I hope to briefly consider the first verses, especially 1-7. Admittedly, there is much to cover, so we will not be able cover it all. But, also consider v.13 and think about what that means. Try turning it around and consider the inverse. Oh, and verse 16 is interesting. Reflect on verse 22 and think about when you've been a "downcast spirit" in somebody's life.

But, I really want to get to verses 27-28. This is the origin of the title. How often do we think about what we are saying ... or how often we do use a reflection of things said to improve our own speech? Do you tend to talk because you don't care for the silence? I know people who do this with God also. When they pray, they ramble on and on -- not certain as to why.

We all need to hear the message of vv.27-28. Sometimes saying nothing speaks volumes, where as speaking yeilds only a disappointment.
Sometimes the most we can say, is nothing at all.
