A.B. Simpson once stated, “I would rather play with forked lighting than to speak a reckless word against any servant of Christ, or idly repeat any slanderous darts which thousands of Christians are hurling at others.”

In a world where gossip and slander seem to permeate conversations, A.B. Simpson's words serve as a poignant reminder of the impact of our speech. He recognized the danger of careless and slanderous words, emphasizing his commitment to refrain from speaking against any servant of Christ.

The book of Proverbs also warns us about the consequences of spreading lies or being a false witness. Proverbs 19:9 states, “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.”

As followers of Christ, we must be mindful of our speech and strive to reflect His love, grace, and truth in everything we say. Let us resist the temptation to engage in gossip, slander, or careless talk and instead guard our tongues accordingly.
