"A perverse man spreads strife, And a slanderer separates intimate friends." Proverbs 16:28
We are worthless when we gossip, when we put others down. We are worthless when we hunt for evil in other people's lives. Wow. This is truth that will split your heart in two! To take part in tearing another person down in the guise of prayer requests even is bad, bad behavior. It makes us worthless!!!
Let us not be worthless to God, to ourselves, to this world, to our families.
We need to choose life in our words, not death. We need to build up, not tear down with every word we speak.
Don't waste time with your words. Use them for good. Use them for God. Use them to build up each other.
