Proverbs 16:27-28 “A wicked scoundrel digs up evil, and his slander is like a scorching fire. A perverse person spreads dissension, and a gossip separates the closest friends.”

Our mouths get us into trouble all the time, but it’s not really our mouths that are the problem! Sin starts from within. A wicked and ungodly person will have hatred and evil in their heart, and it will eventually come out. They’ll spread lies, gossip, and even try to alienate people from one another. They delight in spreading misery. That is not the way we are supposed to be!

Proverbs 26:20 “Where there is no wood, a fire goes out, and where there is no gossip, contention ceases.”
