“Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.” Proverbs 11:13 (ESV)
The evidence of wisdom is not in what we say to glorify self, but in what we don’t say to glorify our God. When we live Spirit-led lives, we filter our thoughts through our relationship with Jesus Christ, rather than through our own ambitions. We become more concerned about being trustworthy before God, not men. In all things, we seek to give glory to our Lord and that is in words spoken and unspoken.
Let’s pray today to be faithful to our Lord and not be so quick to share another’s confided shame.
