It's the 15th of the month....time to pick a new scripture to memorize!! I did really well and memorized the 1st one in 3 days.
My 2nd scripture is Proverbs 18:8 "The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts".
Life Application Bible explains- It is as hard to refuse to listen to gossip as it is to turn down a delicious dessert. Taking just one morsel of either one creates a taste for more. You can resist rumors the same way a determined dieter resists candy--never even open the box. If you don't nibble on the first bite of gossip, you can't take the second and the third.
