Proverbs 14:33 NKJV

Wisdom rests in the heart of him who has understanding, But what is in the heart of fools is made known.

We need understanding to know what to share and what to keep. In Matthew 7:6 Jesus warned against casting pearls before swine that would trample them under their feet and then attack you. Sometimes we can be so excited about what we have learned that we want to tell everyone. However, some things God shares with us or some things we learn or discover are not to be shared indiscriminately. Some things we need to keep totally to ourselves for a time. Some things need to be shared with a specific person or a select group, while other things are for disseminating to the public. Wisdom and understanding help us to discern what to do with what we know. So let us seek God’s face and stay close to Him to allow Him to develop us in the area of wisdom and understanding.
