There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all.- Unknown
Think back over the past few days. . . what did you talk about? Were the words that you spoke true? Were they pleasing to God? Did you gossip about anyone? Or any event? How did you embellish a story to keep your audience entranced? When was the last time you passed along hearsay? Or “shared a juicy morsel of news” with someone? Or shared a “prayer request” that was actually rumor? Be careful! Listen to what the Bible says about gossip. . .
Take the time to inspect your speech today. Ask God to point out those false stories that you may be passing along. The next time you’re tempted to gossip just close your mouth. . .and you will earn the legacy of being a trustworthy, wise follower of Christ!
