“If you want to see the day fill up with good, say nothing evil or hurtful.” ~ #Joel Osteen sharing 1 Peter 3:10
The complete verse is
1 Peter 3:10 For “He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.
Just because you may have the right to speak the truth about someone’s bad deeds, it is still better to stay quiet and not become carriers of the gossip. Let those words or actions die within you.
“Every person carries a bucket of gasoline and a bucket of water. When you hear rumors, gossip, juicy information, you can either pour your gasoline on it, add fuel to the fire and make it worse, or you can do what God says and pour water on it, help to try and put it out.” ~ Joel Osteen.
