Gentle Words

A conversation can easily turn to full on gossip if we are not careful.  We know this, gossip does not please God and it can cause a deep wounds that never heal.  If we are women who constantly find ourselves participating in gossip, it should be no surprise when our lives are filled with stress.

Prayer Prompt:

Father, teach me to become a woman who can keep a confidence. Let the words out of my mouth always be truthful.  I want to become a woman who puts fires out, not one who feeds them.  Fill my heart and mouth with gentle words that grow into a tree of life.

Scriptures: 

A gossip goes around telling secrets,
but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.  Proverbs 11:13

Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from telling lies.  Psalm 34:13

Without wood a fire goes out;
without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire,
so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife.  Proverbs 26: 20-21

Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.  Proverbs 15:4
