Learn To Be Quiet
Christians must follow My Son's example,
Yet they're gossiping instead;
But Jesus never done this,
And He judges the living and the dead.
Where's your love for people?
You shouldn't talk about them - but pray;
Pray if you see them sinning,
And help them turn away.
Keep matters to yourself.
Don't tell secrets, and be a false friend;
Love them as you want to be loved.
Don't tell others they've sinned.
I love them no matter what they've done.
They're loved as much as you;
You talk about My sons and daughters...
As their Father, you hurt Me too.
I love that person you talk about.
I love the alcoholic, and the poor;
I love the liar, and the thief,
And I don't love you any more.
I love everyone made in My image...
Every person that looks like you;
You don't see their hearts -
You don't know what they've been through.
Every time you gossip - you judge,
Making them lower than you;
It helps to avoid your own pain
Of sins you can't face up to.
And to those who do not gossip,
But are surrounded by those who do;
Know this...if they talk about people,
They'll also talk about you.
