 “The words of the reckless pierce like swords…” Proverbs 12:18a 

  • GOSSIP and SLANDER

“A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.” Proverbs 16:28

“Wrongdoers eagerly listen to gossip; liars pay close attention to slander.” Proverbs 17:4 (NLT)

  • CRITICISM and COMPLAINING 

“The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18

 

 

The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.” Ezekiel 37: 1-3

 

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath[a] enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.  Ezekiel 37:4-7

 

“So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.” Ezekiel 37:7-8

 

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. Ezekiel 37:9-10

    So many times gossip has hurt my heart, caused me to run. Even to run from the church I once loved. I really wish we were still close to you guys. However internet is a wonderful thing. Thank you for still being true to your word. Love Both you and Pam.
