In my study of the book of James, I'm learning the impact words can have and the instruction on how to control your tongue. The comparison of our tongue to a rudder on a ship shows how something small can have a large impact.
I am grateful for the wise women I know who are quick to listen and slow to speak. There is encouragement, instruction and even careful correction. We all need a wise one to speak into our lives in a Godly way. And we all need to have our 'person' we can tell everything to and still be loved. You find out quickly by what someone talks about if they are a prospect for secrecy. Chances are if they talk about others to you they are talking about you to others.
