Today in the ‘verbs, Chapter 11.
11 Upright citizens are good for a city and make it prosper,
but the talk of the wicked tears it apart.
12 It is foolish to belittle one’s neighbor;
a sensible person keeps quiet.
13 A gossip goes around telling secrets,
but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.
Never more true. It’s never been easier to sa …or post…or tweet… the wrong thing,never been harder to refrain. But it’s still foolish to belittle others, and it’s still sensible to keep quiet.
So much more great wisdom in Chapter 11. I hope you will read it today.
I’m going to go spend my day just struggling to put these three verses into action…
