Getting the best out of any situation will depend on our aptitude.
MYmother often says: no fly enters a closed
mouth. And this phrase has been with me throughout my life, but it has not been
easy to apply. If I had to make a list of times I've screwed up with a friend
or a situation by not keeping my mouth shut in time, I wouldn't make this
devotional and could write a whole book of anecdote. I also learned that a wise
person is usually quiet and only speaks when the occasion calls for it. One of
the gifts that the Spirit of God grants is wisdom, in addition, learning to
control our body is part of another gift and we can recognize it as
self-control. This same gift allows us to go against injustices, as when Christ
drove the merchants out of the Temple: They arrived in Jerusalem; and
when Jesus entered the temple, he began to drive out those who were buying and
selling in the temple; he overturned the tables of the money changers and the
seats of those who sold the pigeons, and did not allow anyone to carry any
objects through the temple. And this same power that acted in Jesus of
Nazareth, was the one that allowed him to stand firm before his accusers and
before Pontius Pilate.
"AGAIN PILATO ASKED HIM, SAYING: ANYTHING
ANSWER? SEE HOW MANY THINGS YOU ARE ACCUSED OF.”
Mark 15. 4
Definitely Jesus of Nazareth was made of another fibre, of course, I do not
mean one hundred percent of his divinity. If anything, I appeal to the human
part of him. Well, as much as the Holy Spirit of God dwells in us, if we do not
listen to it, we will effectively do our will. So, guidance will be lost and of
course wisdom and self-control will not work in our lives.
“BUT JESUS NOT EVEN WITH THAT ANSWERED; SO PILATO WAS WONDERFUL.”
Mark 15. 5
If Pilate marvelled at Jesus' rare strategy of keeping silent, can we
imagine the impact we can make on society by being wise and having control or
self-control? This would mean that we would be a faithful reflection of Christ
and in this way we would demonstrate that he really rose from the dead and lives
in each one of us.
God bless you.
