There are certain Things That we Think Does Not Really Matter in life, So we May Actually Believe That This is more Important Than This or This one matters more Than any other thing But The Truth is That Most of The Things we Ignore Are As Important As The One we Think Matters,
A simple Uncultured Free Speech made Hastily under Pressure,Tension or Anger can Shatter Your Whole Life,
LETS SEE FROM THE BIBLE;
2 Kings 1:9-13,15
Then the king sent to Elijah a captain of fifty men with his fifty [to seize him]. He found Elijah sitting on a hilltop and said, Man of God, the king says, Come down.
Elijah said to the captain of fifty, If I am a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty. And fire fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.
Again King [Ahaziah] sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he said to Elijah, Man of God, the king has said, Come down quickly!
And Elijah answered, If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.
This Incident may not really make Sense To Most people, But Some can still learn from it,
Note:-The way You Present Your Speech Will Determine The Response You will Get After The Speech,
Ahaziah sent again a captain of a third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up and fell on his knees before Elijah and besought him and said to him,
Oh man of God, I pray you, let my life and the lives of these fifty, your servants, be precious in your sight.
The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, Go down with him; do not be afraid of him. So he arose and went with him to the king.
The Last Captain Came With The Same INFORMATION But The Reaction And Response WAS NOT THE SAME,
Most Times it is not having knowledge, Wisdom, Information and A Speech That Is The Problem But The Way And Manner We Present It.
CONSIDER THIS TOO,
According To The King Of Babylon, All The wise Men were to Be destroyed ( Daniel 2:12
For this cause the king was angry and very furious and commanded that all the wise men of Babylon be destroyed.)
But A Wise And Prudent Speech From Daniel Delayed The Process And Everybody Was Saved From Death Because Of One Man’s Speech,
Then Daniel returned an answer which was full of prudence and wisdom to Arioch the captain or executioner of the king’s guard, who had gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon.
Note: Only Daniel Spoke And In The Case Of Elijah Only The Captains Spoke But Everybody Enjoyed And Suffered The CONSEQUENCES,
SO THE BIG QUESTION IS :- Will Your Speech Destroy Everybody? Or Rescue Everybody?(Think About It)
For every Prudent Speech That We Make, There is A Reward And A Blessing,
Then the king made Daniel great and gave him many great gifts, and he made him to rule over the whole province of Babylon and to be chief governor over all the wise men of Babylon.
PLEASE Don’t Rush And Say Foolish Things, Think Again And Consider Carefully The Aftermath Of That SHORT Speech,
Statements May be Easy To make, But Their Implications May Take Years Of Regret To Resolve.
Take Heed To Thyself!!
GOD IS THE ULTIMATE
