Keep dreams that God gives you for yourself

Let us look at Genesis 37:10-11:”When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, “What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?” 11 His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind.“

The lesson that we can learn here is probably this: keep dreams that God gives you for yourself. I do not mean to say that Joseph made a mistake by sharing the dream with his brothers and father, but looking at the Bible generally and life experiences I see that it is much better to keep silent about some of the things that the Lord gives you rather than running and sharing that with everybody else. Why? You might be throwing your pearls to pigs. You will be understood by most. You have to know when sharing is necessary and when you should keep silent. In some cases this sharing of yours will only arouse jealousy in other hearts. I hope you do not want it.
