Thanksgiving is past and left overs are abundant. Hopefully each of us have a few more precious memories to tuck in our souls. Many will have a few old wounds slightly opened or at least touched.
I go again to Proverbs for the wisdom I so desperately need.
Family gathering times can be times of talking about others.
Proverbs 18:8 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts.
That’s the problem. Those words can wound deeply and not be forgotten
Proverbs 16:21 The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.
To be silent and let ones heart listen to God for His wisdom is a sure way for the words that follow to be worth speaking.
