Proverbs 17:9


When we are hurt by someone we have a choice;
we can quietly forgive or we can tell others.

There may be a temporary sense of satisfaction to talk about the hurt suffered. 
With patience the hurt is eased and love remains. 

Are you willing to lose a  treasure for something that will not last?

May this be a day of grace,

  1. Sometimes telling a trust worthy person such as counsellor, sibling, friend, priest helps ease the burden. With their loving support and prayers, eases the pain. In due time, patience helps ease the pain. Talking through experience. Thanks for listening and your blessings, Patricia. Your prayerful ministry is truly a blessings to us.

    • It is important to talk with someone when the happenings of life burden us. The verse, I believe, is referring to gossip. Gossip is always harmful and will destroy friendship.
