Word of Mouth
by PamFord Davis
5/22/2018 / Devotionals
How many of you remember the grammar school game of gossip?
Was a teacher passing time or intuitively influencing children in their formative years?
She leaned down and whispered something into the ear of one of my classmates. Curious, the rest of us sat in a circle waiting to have the message reach us.
By the time it made its way back to the first child it had changed drastically. We giggled but learned how gossip is not always true.
‘Word of mouth’ can have either negative or positive effects.
“The one who reveals secrets is a constant gossip;
avoid someone with a big mouth (Proverbs 20:19 HCSB).”
And yet, a personal testimony is passed by word of mouth.
“Then the woman left her water jar, went into town, and told the men, ‘Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Messiah?’ They left the town and made their way to Him (John 4:28-30 HCSB).”
They made their way to Jesus because she had shared a word of mouth testimony.
“Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of what the woman said when she testified, ‘He told me everything I ever did (John 4:39 HCSB).”
The Samaritan woman testified; the men trusted Jesus as their Messiah!
