Leaving Things Unsaid

Sometimes I feel like I need to include EVERYTHING in a lesson or a sermon or a talk with my kids. But Jesus said,

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now” (John 16:12).

With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it. (Mark 4:33)
Choice words, fitly spoken, beat the kitchen sink every time.

  1. Bro, so good.
    The Lord has been [trying to] lead and teach me about this lately. I am finding it takes not only self-disiciple and grace, but actually a willingness to trust Him and be led by His Spirit, in the moment. Then the hard part: letting the rest go, and sitting satisfied with the product.
    I also find it reveals my own arrogance... why should I think everything I have or know is actually helpful?!
    :) Good word mate. Thanks
