Proverbs Chapter 26

You've heard it said, "If you can't say anything good... don't say anything at all."  Well, God tells us the natural result of holding your tongue.

Without wood a fire goes out;

    without gossip a quarrel dies down.

Gossip is the fuel that fires quarrels. Without it, relationships are preserved. Think about that truth today as you have conversations and are tempted to chime in with some comments about certain people that are best left unsaid.

God will bless your reading,
Pastor David

  1. In verses 14 & 15, Solomon uses humorous metaphors to describe a lazy man.

    This is the first time I have read of humor in the bible. It may be in some other places, but I have not seen it before this.
