Scripture for the day is Proverbs 11:13

A gossip betrays a confidence,
    but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I know that if I think more carefully about what gossip is, I will find I engage in it and encourage it. I have wronged many people over the years through it. Help me to be far more attentive and sensitive to it in myself and others. And forgive me for the sinful talk I have done. Amen.
