Time of keeping silent and speaking out:
+ The Bible says, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven; … A time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (Ecc3:1,7). The wise is he who knows when to speak and when to keep silent, who knows to differentiate between the suitable time to talk and the suitable time to be silent, and who is able to control his tongue, and his speech. When he speaks, he is able to select every word to avoid stumbling. Such a man was described in the Bible by St. James saying, “If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body” (Jam3:2). Thus, controlling the tongue is the measure of human perfection.
