02-29-2024 Sirach 20 V0103 One wise keeps silent


The Book of Sirach Ch 20 v- One thru Three

1 There is an admonition that is untimely, but the silent person is the wise one. 2 It is much better to admonish than to lose one’s temper; 3 one who admits a fault will be kept from disgrace.

It is often said that timing is everything, and this holds true even when it comes to giving admonishment. While it may be tempting to speak up and offer criticism or advice right away, there are times when doing so can actually do more harm than good. In these situations, it is the silent person who shows true wisdom by exercising restraint and waiting for the right moment to speak up.

One of the main reasons why admonition can be untimely is because emotions are running high. When someone is upset or angry, they are less likely to be receptive to feedback or advice. By waiting for a calmer moment, the admonisher can ensure that their words are more likely to be heard and taken to heart.

Furthermore, speaking up at the wrong time can also lead to the person being admonished losing their temper. This can escalate the situation and make it even more difficult to have a productive conversation. By waiting for a more opportune moment, the silent person can avoid unnecessary conflict and ensure that their message is delivered in a way that is more likely to be received positively.

In addition, admitting fault and accepting admonition can actually be a sign of wisdom and strength. By acknowledging your mistakes and being open to feedback, a person can learn and grow from their experiences. On the other hand, those who refuse to admit fault and become defensive risk falling into disgrace and damaging their relationships with others.

In conclusion, while there may be times when admonition is untimely, the silent person who waits for the right moment to speak up shows true wisdom. By exercising patience and choosing the right time to offer criticism or advice, they can ensure that their words are more likely to be heard and accepted. Ultimately, it is better to be admonished and grow from the experience than to lose one's temper and risk damaging relationships. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.

At the Savior's command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**One wise keeps silent**

Untimely is scolding admonishment

One wise keeps silent

Temper lose not in banishment

Over disgrace fault admit unless defiant
