14. How can the wife of an elder help him to maintain a good reputation?

14 A wife can help her husband maintain a good reputation by not pressuring him to talk about matters that should be kept confidential. When a wife applies this advice, she not only supports her husband but also shows honor to those who have confided in him. And most important, she makes Jehovah happy because she is contributing to the peace and unity of the congregation.—Rom. 14:19.

You have a unique gift, and you are not to let any man rob this from you.

Do not make me have to delve into polok jokes, you are better than this.

Re: There is a time to be silent.... and a time to speak. Ecc3:1
HOW DOES JEHOVAH FEEL ABOUT WHAT WE SAY?

15. How did Jehovah feel about three of Job’s companions, and why?

15 We can learn much from the Bible book of Job about how and when to speak. After Job suffered a series of heartbreaking calamities, four men came to comfort him and to offer counsel. Those men spent a lot of time being silent. But from the statements made later by three of these men—Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar—it is obvious that they did not spend this time thinking about how they could help Job. Instead, they were thinking about how they could prove that Job had done something wrong. They made some accurate statements, but much of what they said about Job and about Jehovah was either unkind or untrue. They judged Job harshly. (Job 32:1-3) How did Jehovah respond? His anger burned hot against those three men. He called them foolish and made them ask Job to pray for them.—Job

How did God feel about Job's wife's reaction to his suffering?
Then Jehovah said to Satan: “Where have you come from?” Satan answered Jehovah: “From roving about on the earth and from walking about in it.” 3And Jehovah said to Satan: “Have you taken note of my servant Job? There is no one like him on the earth. He is an upright man of integrity, fearing God and shunning what is bad. He is still holding firmly to his integrity, even though you try to incite me against him to destroy him for no reason.” 4But Satan answered Jehovah: “Skin for skin. A man will give everything that he has for his life. 5But, for a change, stretch out your hand and strike his bone and flesh, and he will surely curse you to your very face.”
6Then Jehovah said to Satan: “Look! He is in your hand! Only do not take his life!” 7So Satan went out from the presence of Jehovah and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. 8And Job took a piece of broken pottery to scrape himself, and he was sitting among the ashes.
9Finally his wife said to him: “Are you still holding firmly to your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10But he said to her: “You are talking like one of the senseless women. Should we accept only what is good from the true God and not accept also what is bad?” In all of this, Job did not sin with his lips.

16. What can we learn from the bad examples set by Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar?

16 We learn a number of lessons from the bad examples set by Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar. First, we should not judge our brothers. (Matt. 7:1-5) Instead, we should listen carefully to them before we speak. Only then will we be able to understand their situation. (1 Pet. 3:8) Second, when we do speak, we must make sure that our words are kind and our statements accurate. (Eph. 4:25) And third, Jehovah takes a keen interest in what we say to one another.

17. What can we learn from Elihu’s example?

17 The fourth man to visit Job was Elihu, a relative of Abraham. He listened as Job and the three other men spoke. He obviously paid close attention to what was said because he was able to give some compassionate but direct counsel that helped Job correct his thinking. (Job 33:1, 6, 17) Elihu’s main concern was to exalt Jehovah, not himself or any other man. (Job 32:21, 22; 37:23, 24) From Elihu’s example we learn that there is a time to keep silent and listen. (Jas. 1:19) We also learn that when we do give counsel, our primary interest should be to bring honor to Jehovah, not to ourselves.

18. How can we show that we value the gift of speech?

18 We can show that we value the gift of speech by following the Bible’s advice about when and how to speak. Wise King Solomon was inspired to write: “Like apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time.” (Prov. 25:11) When we listen carefully to what others say and we think before we speak, our words can be like those apples of gold—both valuable and beautiful. Then, whether we say a little or a lot, our speech will build others up, and we will make Jehovah proud of us. (Prov. 23:15; Eph. 4:29) What better way could we express our appreciation for this gift from God!

“There is . . . a time to be silent and a time to speak.”—ECCL. 3:1,
1. What does Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7 teach us?

SOME of us like to talk a lot. Others like to be quiet. As the theme text of this article points out, there is both a time to speak and a time to be silent. (Read Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7.) Still, we may wish that some of our brothers and sisters would talk more. And we may want some to talk less.
