DAILY DEVO...gossip


I remember when I was a teen, my friends dad had diabetes. He would go to church with us but had a hard time staying awake. People would talk about him. But what they didnt know is that he couldn't help it, he didnt have his medicine and diet regulated yet.

Gossip. Telling the truth is one thing, but the other thing, gossip, is what really counts, for it reveals what is in our hearts....

James, Jesus' half brother understood the danger of gossip...

James 1:26 "If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless."

Gossip destroys. Not only those we talk about. But it destroys our character as well.

Like my friends dad, we may not know the entire story, so lets keep our tongue tamed.
