Mike's Minute

By Mike Kelley

He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life:
but he that openeth wide his lips
shall have destruction.

Proverbs 13:3

Constance Cameron tells about a lesson her mother taught her. One day, when she was about eight, she was playing beside an open window. Inside, Mrs. Brown was confiding a personal problem to Constance's mother.

After Mrs. Brown had gone, the mother realized that Constance had heard everything that had been said. She called her daughter in and said, "If Mrs. Brown had left her purse here today, would we give it to anyone else?"

"Of course not," the girl said. Her mother went on, "Mrs. Brown left something more precious than her pocketbook here today. She left a story that could make many people unhappy. That story is not ours to give to anyone. It is still hers, even though she left it here. So, we shall not give it to anyone. Do you understand?"

She did. And from that day on, whenever a friend would share a confidence or even engage in careless gossip, she considered what they said to be the personal property of the other person- and not hers to give to anyone else.

The old saying bears great truth: "If you don't have something nice to say about someone or something, don't say anything at all." Always remember, the kindest words ever said are the unkind words that were never said!
