Pro 17v27 – Headlamp

It’s a perfect evening atop the mountain as we enjoy the sun slowly melting beyond the distant hills gilding the valley in a farewell gift of gold. As darkness slowly creeps across the sky, draining all vestiges of colour, we decide to head back. Making our way down the hill, only our headlamps enable us to avoid tripping on roots and rocks as we weave along the forest path. While the headlamps are essential, the only issue is that night bugs are also attracted to the light, so it’s best to speak with care to avoid unwanted micro snacks. I can’t help but see and taste the message. We can’t walk life’s paths without light. If we try, we will certainly trip and fall. God provides us with His Word to help light our lives. “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (Psalms 119:105). His light gives us divine knowledge to understand the dark world around us. However, knowledge should lead to restraint of speech. “The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint” (Proverbs 17:27). Once we see, we must learn when to speak and when to be silent because sometimes when we open our mouth to speak but instead swallow a bug, maybe it’s God telling us it’s “a time to be silent” (Ecclesiastes 3:7).
