MESSAGE FOR THE DAY: 17th September 2022 | BGDD | Billy Graham Daily Devotional — The Power of Words

There is a story of a woman in England who came to her vicar with a troubled conscience. The vicar knew her to be a habitual gossip—she had maligned nearly everyone in the village.

“How can I make amends?” she pleaded. The vicar said, “If you want to make peace with your conscience, take a bag of goose feathers and drop one on the porch of each one you have slandered.”

When she had done so, she came back to the vicar and said, “Is that all?” “No,” said the wise old minister, “you must go now and gather up every feather and bring them all back to me.”

After a long time the woman returned without a single feather. “The wind has blown them all away,” she said.

“My good woman,” said the vicar, “so it is with gossip. Unkind words are easily dropped, but we can never take them back again.”

PRAYER FOR THE DAY

Might my words about another be ones that are spoken in the spirit of Your loving kindness, Father.
