"Do not grumble against one another, brothers..." James 5:9 (ESV)
I am guilty of "speaking evil". I've talked about people behind their backs. Even as the words came out, I knew I was wrong, but once I start, it is hard to stop. How can I say that I love people if I speak against them and judge?
Father, help me! I don't want to speak evil. I want to speak life. Help me turn to You in prayer, instead of speaking negatively. Put a guard at my lips. Help me turn negative conversations into positive ones. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Do you speak life? What helps you resist gossip?
