In his book, “LECTURES TO MY STUDENTS,” the still highly regarded nineteenth century minister, C.H. Spurgeon, wrote: “I have one blind eye and one deaf ear and they are the best ear and eye that I have.” This trainer of ministers was simply passing on the advice of Solomon written long before him: “Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken” (Ecclesiastes 7:21).
When I hear someone say, “I’m always the last to know about trouble in my church,” I know I’m in wise company.
Some things are better left unseen and unheard.
