I came across an article that I probably needed to read. I pray that I am not a "loudmouth" as described in this article, though I fear that I am. I pray God's grace continues to shape me.
The author writes, "Part of the danger with loudmouths is they haven’t recognized that
knowledge divorced from love is empty; this is why they frequently cause
trouble in churches. Their ultimate concern isn’t for Christ and his
church but themselves. They are more interested in having everyone know
how knowledgeable they are instead of simply serving Christ in quiet
humility in the knowledge that our Savior, in the end, is the only one
who truly knows. While it ultimately calls for wisdom, when in doubt,
keep what you know to yourself and quietly serve in the church and pray
that Christ would keep you humble."
