Have you ever seen a fire grow? It’s incredible how something that starts with just one small spark can grow so quickly into such a powerful force. Solomon wrote here that our words have a similar power. Just as fire spreads and destroys quickly, so does gossip. But we have the power to put the fire out. In fact, we can choose not to start it at all simply by keeping our mouths closed. Ask God to help you control the fire of your words by choosing to keep quiet instead of gossip.
