Daily Verse: “Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.” Prov. 11:13
Today’s verse contrasts the difference between a trustworthy person and a gossip. Don’t tell your tales to someone who can’t wait to spread juicy news. People who can’t keep a secret give themselves away quickly. If they share one secret, they will share them all.
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
Becoming a trustworthy person allows people a safe place to confess their sins and begin the path to healing. Praying for someone’s struggles helps them grow in the Lord and overcome their mountains.
Create a safe environment for the people you love by keeping their secrets. Give them someone to turn to during the battle.
Keep things covered and give people a safe place to spill their secrets.
Lord, forgive us when we’ve not kept secrets. Please help us create safe environments for people to discuss their struggles. In all things, let us honor and serve You well. IJNIP. Amen
