Old Testament: Pro 11.13

To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 11–12 on September 7, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

To whom should you talk about things in your life? Perhaps you just need to talk to someone, but you want someone who can keep it to himself. Consider what Solomon said: 

A talebearer reveals secrets,
But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter.
