SILENCE IS NOT CONSENT. In fact, the Bible declares the opposite to be true, “sin is in the multitude of words, but he that refrains his lips is wise”. Silence is wisdom. Here’s a novel idea: if you want to know how someone thinks or feels about something; call them up, set up a coffee date and ask them face to face. Have a real in person face to face, heart to heart, conversation with someone. Stop bullying people from behind a keyboard.
Do not be counted with the wicked people sowing discord. You will never reach a peaceful conclusion from Facebook. Part of communication is eye contact and body language, tone and inflection of the voice and body mannerism. Look them in the eyes and share your heart. Ask for some grace because maybe the words just don’t come out right.
Do not assume you know anyone based off an online relationship or status update. Seek to know their heart. But above all, seek God’s heart. Here’s the Lord’s perspective on our sinful ways, “These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes.” Psalms 50:21 See, God’s silence is not His consent. Want to know what God thinks about something? Read the Bible and do not twist His Words. His Word is His will. Be careful not to slant His precepts based on your feelings. He will set things in order before your very eyes. #runyourrace
