Have you ever heard the saying, “too much of a good thing is not a good thing”? Well, Proverbs 27 says that too loud of a good thing (especially before noon) is not a good thing. If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse. I learned this wise saying when we began our married life in an apartment in 1989 in Dallas. Our upstairs neighbor played the drums and even though he was part of a Christian band, when we heard the creative sounds from his drums too early in the morning (or late at night) it did not fall upon us like a blessing! A few years later we moved into our next apartment with three babies under three years old. I have a feeling that our “little blessings” who cried at various times of the day and night might not have always been a sweet sound to our new neighbors’ ears. But still, it is good to share goodness, so go ahead and bless your neighbors, just not too early or too loudly!
