Recently I read someone quoting Mark Twain as saying,
“It is better to be silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all shadow of doubt.”That is my paraphrase from memory.
What got my attention was that Twain was paraphrasing the Bible and people don’t even notice it. He is not known for his respect for Christianity but he was not above using the wisdom of Proverbs.
Look around you. Look at all the great ideas and concepts that are being pushed. If you dig a little deeper you will find that some of them are rooted in the teaching of the Bible. They are godly wisdom even if credit is not given. On the other side, if you can’t find the idea backed up in scripture you might want to be very careful about accepting it as having any lasting value.
So? Know the Word. Wrestle with the principles and behaviors that are highlighted by God. It should give you the kind of foundation you need in a Google world.
