Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. (Proverbs 26:20, NIV)
Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird in the sky may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say. (Ecclesiastes 10:20, NIV)
The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. (Proverbs 26:22, KJV)
Prayer- God, our mouths speak too much about too little. Guard us from gossip about others today. Amen.
