Thomas a Kempis: holding the tongue

Friday, September 12, 2014
A man of knowledge uses words with restraint,
    and a man of understanding is even-tempered.
    —Proverbs 17:27 (NIV)
    Thou wilt never be spiritually minded and godly unless thou art silent concerning other men’s matters and take full heed to thyself.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, II.v.2, p. 91 (see the book)
    See also Prov. 17:27; Col. 3:22-24; 1 Thess. 4:11-12; 2 Thess. 3:11; 1 Pet. 4:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to focus on the work You have given to me.
