Why Didn’t He Say Anything? — 3 Comments

  1. Excellent! William, thanks so much for writing this post!

    I hadn't heard of, “You don’t have to swing at every pitch.” And what does this mean, “You don’t have to die on every hill”?

    Until I went into counseling as an adult, and had some people listen to me unconditionally, I had been rather quiet. Then after the counseling, I started talking more, and sometimes went to the other extreme, even being impulsive. So these days, my husband continues to remind me, "Halt den Schnabel!" German for, "shut your mouth or trap!"

    A very special young person we know, worked in our business for nine years. When he first started, I would pick him up and drive him to work. We would talk about all kinds of things but sometimes he was absolutely silent, but happy.

    He taught me that silence is healthy. Today, at age 33, he is a top engineer at Sikorsky helicopter, married and owns a home. Sometimes the brightest people are often quiet.

  2. William, thank you for the baseball illustration. I'm not a fan, but I think I got it. As a child, I was a terrible batter. Hopefully, I'll not strike out as much in the future.

  3. Thanks so much for the excellent article. Sometimes more is less. So much food for thought. As Christians if we listen for the still small voice before we speak it will probably change our responses and or perhaps wisely we won't speak at all. Thanks again.
