Guard Your Mouth

Jeremiah 15:19
"If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless, you shall be as my mouth"

We'll know a tree by it's fruit, right?

If our mouths are uttering precious things we will be like Jesus. But if a person gossips, weighing in on a matter that has nothing to do with her, to another person who has nothing to do with the situation, it doesn't matter how many times she says, " I don't want to be around all the gossip".  The fruit of her lips exposes the truth of her character. Her fruit is worthless.

If we truly want to be like Jesus and be a blessing to others,  gossip has no place on our lips.
