Keep It to Yourself

  We may talk too much. We have successes and disappointments and we tell others. Often they really don't care and do not understand our interest. So why tell them? It would likely be better not to discuss many things that we often discuss because no good can come from it and there is nothing to be done about it anyway. Just keep it to yourself.

  Some have adopted the idea that telling everybody how you feel is good therapy. That's nonsense. They won't understand how you feel. But there is always One who understands and we can go to Him in prayer. He knows our hearts, sorrows, disappointments, gains and losses and He cares. A slow-down on talking may be a good move on our part. Just carry the load with the Lord. "A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards" (Proverbs 29:11).
