Proverbs 11:9The Message (MSG)
9 The loose tongue of the godless spreads destruction;
the common sense of the godly preserves them.
I was having a conversation the other day about a family member of mine with a Co-worker. I did not know that another Co-worker was in a similar situation.
That Co-worker walked past our conversation and started to give me a piece of their mind. They told me if I had something to say to them or about them say it to them. Being the patient person I am, I waited and later reveals to them I was speaking of a family member.
Oh, how low and embarrassed this person felt, yelling, and spreading their own business throughout the workplace for no reason at all.
I told this story because I wanted to give you an example of what a loose tongue gets you. It’s better to listen and learn before you speak always.
I charge us today to simply listen. Hearken to the voice of God! Learn something new today! Do something new today! Be blessed!
