Sometimes Silence Is the Best Option

People can easily overlook some of the simplest lessons taught in the Bible. In Second Kings chapter 18 Jerusalem is under siege. The enemy is standing outside the city calling into question the abilities of God to save. Hezekiah having confidence in God has commanded the people to hold their tongues and answer not the ranting of the enemy.

As you journey through life you will meet many people that their view is different their yours. With some of the people you will be able to discuss the different views and maybe even reach an agreement. With some of the people they will just be raving and ranting. With those you best option is the Hezekiah one. Do not drop to their level but hold you peace. You will neither clearly state you case nor convince them to listen let alone when them to your side.
