A Proverb A Day Keeps Stupidity Away XX

CHP 20 V. 19
The one who goes about gossiping reveal secrets; therefore do not associate with someone who is always opening his/her mouth. (NET)

Gossips can’t keep secrets, so never confide in blabbermouths. (MSG)

Why are you surprised when the confidential information you shared with a talkative ends up on everyone lips. Solomon tells us to NEVER confide in a BLABBERMOUTH.


Let he who has an ear hear.

PRAYER: Sometimes I just can’t hold it in anymore and I vent to whoever is nearby, forgive mii Lord. Help mii to choose my confidants wisely. Also help me to be more discrete in sharing what has been told to me. Basically, Lord help me to shut up.
