Silence Can Obscure Ignorance

This verse reminds me vividly of a situation I experienced working at Texas Tech about seven years ago.

When people speak they can not only reveal their levels of knowledge and understanding, they also can reveal the condition of their heart.

Proverbs 17:28 NLT

“Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent.”
