Devo of the week: Proverbs 26:20

“Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down.”  I do not think I have ever seen this verse carved in a wood plaque or declared as someone’s favorite verse.  How would the world be different if Christians and Christian leaders exercised self-control over their mouths? Have I been gossiping recently?  Who have I hurt?  Do I need to seek forgiveness?  Forgive me Lord, for being so quick to talk about others and so slow to hear you voice through others to me.
