I think I hate this town. I really do. If I could, I would move as far away from here as possible, and never come back. I've lived in a lot of different places, but never one where there was as much gossip as there is here. It seems that people have nothing better to do than cut down those around them. The tongue is a powerful thing. Pastor Glen reminded us in church on Sunday how God was able to SPEAK the world into existence. How powerful is that? Just as powerful is it's ability to destroy. I hope that anytime I am tempted to gossip, that I will be reminded and convicted of how it feels to be the one gossiped about. Because it hurts.
Ephesians 4:29 – “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (NIV)
