When people around you are flying off the handle, that’s a good time to keep your lips sealed. Wanna know why? Because then you won’t sin. When everybody’s yelling at each other, mean things and hurtful things are said. Sometimes things get yelled that aren’t even true. Other times someone calls another person a name, and things really go wrong. When you see that happening, be quiet. Then, you won’t get caught up in the terrible things.
I’m sharing this with you for your own protection. If people around you are doing awful things, you don’t wanna be part of that. Do you? No, it’s not good or smart to get caught up in all that. That’s why God says someone who keeps his lips sealed is wise. And being wise is the best thing you can be. Being wise is something you should work on your whole life. There’s no time better than now to get started.
So, if you find yourself around somebody who’s yelling, or saying terrible things, or just trying to be mean…keep your lips sealed. Don’t let yourself get pulled into it. You’ll be doing a mighty good thing. And when you do, let me know about it…OK?
Keep your lips sealed when others yell.
It is the wise choice, and time will tell
How you were smarter and trusting God.
Just keep your lips sealed, and only nod.
