Heartlight Daily Verse 2/20

 

February 20
 
He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
"It's just a little harmless gossip." The Wise Teacher reminds us that gossip is neither little nor harmless. Its consequences are huge and its damage horrible. Instead, it is much better to be a peacemaker and an offense-mender.

Prayer:
 
Father of Glory, I confess that I am often more a peace lover than a peacemaker. Give me the character not to repeat gossip, but instead have the wisdom and strength to be an offense-mender. Through the Prince of Peace I pray. Amen.
