Loose Lips

retro-gossipProverbs 16:28

A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates friends.

1 Thessalonians 5:10-12

He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build  each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 

Final Instructions Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 

Proverbs 14:1
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

Gossip

Gossip is a cruel weapon –  good never grows from gossip.

Gossip brings everyone down.  No story is worth the destruction of another.

Guardian of truth, help me recognize when I’m disguising gossip as prayers and pretending juicy, details about another person’s life is important to my prayer life. It is foolish. It tears down relationships and hurts.

Lord please give me the words and the wisdom to build up my neighbor.  Help me encourage others, just as you love and honor me. Amen.
