Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. – Proverbs 2:11

This proverb can be a pillar of sanity in a day of hundreds of Facebook friends and Twitter followers. As much as these medias call connections friends, we can’t be all things to all people. Discretion protects us by giving us permission to have boundaries about how much people SHOULD know about us. Saying “no” to the demands of an information age can be an act of courage. We all need people that we can open up to, but the Scripture tells us to choose those people wisely. This understanding will guard you from the anxieties of too much information given to too many people.
