Too Much Talk

Most of us like to talk, mostly too much and mostly about ourselves. We even carry it over to prayer life as well.

We talk at God more than we talk to God. First we tell him our problems, then we tell him what to do and then we say, "Bye God, I'll leave you to get to work." As if we are God and God is not.

There is also a danger when there is too much talk. We often end up saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Sometimes to the wrong person or at the wrong place. That's how we get ourselves in trouble.

We really ought to learn to shut up or think before we speak.
