Acts 8:34-35 (NKJV)
So the eunuch answered Philip and said, “I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?” Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.

I found this quote: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt", on a website, and saw that it had an unknown source. Searching further, I saw it was attributed to Abraham Lincoln in a post, while elsewhere, it was credited to a man named Mark Twain. But sadly, unknown to most, this quote has its roots directly from the Word of God (Pro 17:27-28). So are many wise sayings which form principles by which societies in the world abide by today. They have their roots in scriptures but have been reworded and secularized, to exclude Christ as their source.

From our Bible text, it is evident that all books of the Bible (Old and New Testament) point to the Messiah as their central theme. None should be overlooked because of lack of understanding, but rather, they should be studied, for in them Christ is revealed. Like Philip, we will also encounter unbelievers who are familiar with certain verses or quotes from the Bible. In such situations, we must be ready to show them Christ as the true source.

This will happen if we decide to spend more time in his word and with prayer, allow the Holy Spirit reveal its meaning to us. As an assurance from God, if we live this way, we will always have a response to give about our faith without fear, as we witness to others (Lk 21:14-15, 1Jn 2:27, 2 Pet 3:14b-15).

Go into today with the awareness that Christ is the focus throughout all the pages of the scripture. And as you spend time studying His word, you will not be put to shame (2 Tim 2:15).
