QUOTE OF THE DAY: “YOU ARE NOT HEARD BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT SPOKEN”
Memory Verse: “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14.
It is good to be silent, but not in all cases. There are times your silence will do more harm than good. One of the major ways to express feelings, opinions, thoughts and to make contribution is to speak out. By the way, why must you speak out? There are many reasons:
You as an individual is the most valuable resource on the earth. When you speak, express, project something meaningful, your business, your community and even your own life immediately get better. Besides, sinners will be saved, ‘so then faith comes by hearing…’ (Romans 10:17). Thus, you owe humanity a duty to say the truth that will liberate them. Also, when you speak out, pent up positive or negative feelings are expressed and your opinions are made known to the rest of the world (James 5:6).
