Psalm 59:6-7 (JDV)

Psalm 59:6 They return at evening, in uproar like dogs and prowling around the city.
Psalm 59:7 Notice, they spew from their mouths – sharp words from their lips. “Because who,” they say, “is listening?”

David’s enemies thought they could say what they wanted to say to tear him down and seek his destruction because no one was listening — nobody cared. They could not be more wrong. God cares, and he is always listening.

The tongue can tear a heart out. Watch what you say because it can destroy others. Even when they do not appear to have meant anything, your words can dig deep inside and hurt and unsettle the ones you speak to. And your judge is listening.

Lord, give us wisdom to avoid hurtful words.
