Our mouth. It can a weapon or a blessing. As Christ-followers, we know that our mouths speak what is in our heart. But I think sometimes as Christians, we might keep our mouths shut too much.
In other words, when we hear something that doesn't line up with our faith, we think the best thing to do is keep the peace, by keeping quiet.
Discernment from the Holy Spirit will enable us to know, when to keep quiet and when to speak. D.L. Moody said: "I need to be filled with the Holy Spirit constantly, because I leak!" When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, He will give us the wisdom to know what to say, and when, in a way that is winsome (generally pleasing and engaging, often because of a childlike charm and innocence) and engaging, especially when we are at work, where we need to be extra-sensitive, it seems these days, versus condemning.
Find out what some of these guys had to say in their workplaces that were faith-based but not so easy to say.
And, then consider: how will you be opening your mouth for Christ in the workplace today? And will you, when you are led?
