*Scripture Treasure.*

Eccl 10:11 *Surely, the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.*

*Insight and Highlight.*

A person who is patient is very wise, but an impatient person is considered foolish, Prov 14:29.

*Scripture Commentaries.*

Patience, calmness is a virtue, especially when you are under pressure.

A calm person is a good listener and a solver of many problems.

People who are calm under pressure or provocation are great crisis managers.

He that is patient is very wise and he that is impatient, is very foolish.

Impatient people have been known to fall more into mischief or known to end up victims in many unprecedented situations.

This is because when impatient people see people who are running helterskelter, they run with them, not knowing what had happened, and they run into havoc

Eccl 10:11 says that usually a snake will not bite without enchantment, but if it bites before it is charmed, it can be dangerous for the snake charmer.

The charmer plays a tune that the snake listens to. This guides the snake. When the snake refuses to listen, it will fail the enchanter.

At this point in time, the enchanter or charmer loses business.

There is nothing else he could do because the snake had failed, so whatever he does, he will just be like someone who is just running his mouth ( blabber), yet no one is listening.

This word of wisdom in Eccl 10:11 teaches us to always wait for the rightful moment.

Wait for guidance, wait for instructions, wait for your time, Job 14:14.

Failure of the serpent to wait for the charmer will bring failure.

The greatest skill, know-how, speech, and word, is useless unless applied at the right moment.

The serpent's right moment is to wait for the enchanter/ charmer.

Do not be in a hurry to speak. Be calm, remembering, there are words you could speak and are seasoned with salt, Col 4:6.

Do not be in a haste. Wait for the right moment. Wait for it!

*Remorse corner.*

Do not be too late to heed to instructions.

*Call to Word action.*

It is dangerous for the serpent to bite before it is charmed. If it does, there is nothing else for the charmer to do.

No more talk could abate the situation. Anyone who is talking will just be like a babbler, and *".....A babbler is no better."*

*The Christian clarion duty.*

Seize the right opportunity to obey, remembering that to obey is better than sacrifice, 1 Sam 15:22.


Lord, help me to stay calm, for directives and instructions, in Jesus name.

Good morning all and have a blessed day..

God bless you.
